Are you aware of inaccuracies in the ISO 639-3 standard codes for the
identification of languages relating to your area of expertise? If so,
please consider taking a fairly simple step to get them fixed! Submit a
"change request" stating the nature of the change needed, the rationale for
it, and the evidence in support of it. Change requests to be processed and
decided at the end of 2009 are now being accepted.

Included here are the change requests for Africa that been received during
the period since the last review cycle:

Africa, Central    btb    Beti (Cameroon)
Africa, Central    zrn    Zirenkel
Africa, East       nle     East Nyala
Africa, East       lsy     Mauritian Sign Language
Africa, West      ife      Ifè
Africa, West      nqg    Ede Nago
Africa, West      xkb    Manigri-KambolĂ© Ede Nago
Africa, West      mxx   Mahou
Africa, West      tde     Tiranige Diga Dogon
Africa, West      nzz     Nanga Dama Dogon

The submission deadline for this year is September 1, 2009. It is a good
idea to send in requests as early as possible. Requests sometimes require
clarification or expansion to be sure that everything is complete for
review and evaluation. Details on the process and the forms needed may be
found at:
