Message-Id: <6.0.0.20.2.20060728180513.099f2e30@localhost>
To: www-international@w3.org

FYI. This approval means that the publication of draft-ietf-ltru-registry
(aka RFC3066bis) as an RFC is now fully in the hands of the RFC Editor.

Regards,    Martin.

>Technical Summary
>  
>   This document describes a syntax, called a language-range, for
>   specifying items in a user's language preferences, called a language
>   priority list.  It also describes different mechanisms for comparing
>   and matching these to language tags.  Two kinds of matching
>   mechanisms, filtering and lookup, are defined.  Filtering produces a
>   (potentially empty) set of language tags, whereas lookup produces a
>   single language tag.  Possible applications include language
>   negotiation or content selection.  This document, in combination with
>   draft-ietf-ltru-registry-14, will become BCP 47, replacing RFC 3066.

>Working Group Summary
> 
> Working group support for this document is strong.  There was one objection
> raised during IETF Last Call, related to the scope and applicability of the
>  work. This objection had previously been considered and rejected in the
