Trying to catch up on what the current rules are on use of 3-digit
region codes in language tags and got lost in the wording of RFC 5646.
Also interested to know if these UN M.49 codes can still be used in locales.
This is for general info for the benefit of African localizers, not for
a specific localization project. Is there any quick guide that covers
this particular issue?
BTW, it looks like the Territory Containment table at
needs to be updated to show South Sudan in Eastern Africa (per
http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm ). I'll file a bug
report on that.
