I don’t think this is a good idea. I’d just as soon see people get on with implementation.

I really don’t find the practice of one publication in Galicia convincing. The Galegan Wikipedia articles on orthography don’t mention the AO 1990, though it appears that there are some “Reintegrationist” movements arguing that Galician ia a variety of Portuguese, but that is not the same thing as AO1990 becoming an official orthography in Galicia. (The Galician Wikipedia doesn’t even HAVE an article about AO1990.

I think Doug’s spelling correction is enough for now.
