I agree that we should not code alpha-2, but have no objection to including frp in 639-2.

Subject: New ISO 630 proposal - Arpitan; Francoprovençal - disc ussion
Dear JAC members,
The proposal below has been submitted some time ago.
As far as I can understand it is the item that is encoded "frp" (Franco-Provençal) in Ethnologue and ISO 639-3. Ethnologue has as alternate names Patois and Arpitan.
The proposer asks for an alpha-2 identifier as well. I would suggest that we do not include it in the alpha-2 table.
The question is then whether the item should be "moved" from 639-3 to 639-2.
Discussion please (until 14 April).
