I'll try again. There are three requested changes currently in review. 
Each request adds something to the one before, so they are not mutually 


    I wrote this on May 13. The request is to fix the spelling of 
"Portuguese" in the Description.

    Michael has already approved this one (May 15), although that is not 
final until the review period ends May 27.


    Luc wrote this on May 15. It includes the spelling correction from 
(1) above, and also replaces the three language-region Prefix fields 
with "Prefix: pt".

    There is no proposed record for this one, only a registration form, 
but Luc or I could easily bang one out and send it to the list if 
desired. Assuming that is done by May 22, the review period ends May 29.


    Luc also wrote this on May 15. It includes the two changes from (1) 
and (2) above, and adds a new Prefix field, "Prefix: gl".

    The review period for this also ends May 29.

So the choices that have forms supporting them are:

a. Make no change at all
b. Make change 1 only
c. Make changes 1 and 2
d. Make changes 1, 2, and 3

In other words, there are no documents under review to (say) make 
changes 1 and 3 (fix the spelling and add "gl") but not to make change 2 
(replace three "pt-XX" prefixes with "pt"). If Michael wanted that 
option, and he has not said anything yet, someone would need to post 
forms for that combination, and the review period would start when they 
were posted and run for two weeks.

I know this is complicated and cumbersome and bureaucratic, but we did 
want all of this to be traceable. Does this explanation make more sense?
