In that case, do Rebecca and Joan have a clear understanding of action items?
Malay: MARC needs to adjust encompassed languages to those encompassed by 639 macrolanguage mappings
- ISO 639-3: The IDs auv, gsc, lms, lnc and prv will remain defined with their current meanings, but these will be deprecated, they will be documented as having been merged into oci, and users will be advised to use that ID. Change the scope of oci from M to I.
- Both 639-2 and 639-3: Change names for oci from “Occitan (post 1500); Provençal” to “Occitan (post 1500)”. Change names for pro from “Old Provençal (to 1500)” to “Old Occitan (to 1500)” (or, inverted: “Occitan, Old (to 1500)”).
Syriac: no action req’d for 639; MARC needs to distinguish syr and syc
And we have an open issue wrt Malay and Swahili: does 639-2 normalize its names to that of 639-3, i.e. “Malay (macrolanguage)” and “Swahili (macrolanguage)” (and the French equivalents)?
We also need closure on Tibetan and Aramaic, but I’ll leave those for a separate msg.
