Enclosed please find a message from Jean-Arthur Creff.
I ask the representatives from TC46 to take the necessary steps to formally
replace Jean-Arthur Creff. He names his "crown prince", but it is obviously
a matter for TC46 to decide.
As to the procedures of the JAC: The current ballot (Yi) cannot be finalized
in one round. I would like to suggest the following: All items except the
possible inclusion of "yix" = "Yi languages (other)" have received 100%
approval from the rest of the voting members. I would take it for granted
that a second round of voting would produce the same result. Voting members:
PLEASE RESPOND within one week IF YOU DISAGREE.
As to "yix" = "Yi languages (other)" there is one negative vote. I invite
all members to present arguments for or against including "yix" in the
alpha-3 code table (in addition to "ii / iii" = "Sichuan Yi" / "yi de
Sichuan" / "nuosu". A new ballot will be conducted.

It is quite a pleasure to hear from you.
I thought I had told you that I was leaving the Ministry of Culture to work
for NATO, but I may have forgotten. I would have been glad to go on being a
member of the JAC, but my colleagues in France think that I cannot go on as
an international organisation staff.
That is why my colleague Pierre Pouliquen from the Bibliotheque nationale de
France should become the new member if TC 46 agrees. I thought that all had
been done to this respect. That is why I suggest you get in touch with
Catherine Mattenet at AFNOR.
Please transmit my warm regards to all the JAC members, and especially to
Office of Information and Press
