I agree with Peter on both his points quoted below.
On the specific "hbs" code for ISO 639-2, I would also like to see a
summary of the discussions about the previous USMARC (and UKMARC) code,
included in the round up of this. The way that they were split into "scr"
and "scc" was quite well put, from memory, and quite a logical thing to do
at the time, even though Serbo-Croatian still exists as an entity.
Rebecca or Milicent: any chance that you could send me a summary of that?
I seem to have archived it out of sight as it were.
Many thanks in advance
