Subject: Re: Issue: two-letter or three-letter language codes?

Hello UBL TC and developers,

Since no compelling reason has been offered for switching to
three-letter language codes, we will continue using the two-letter
versions in UBL 2.1.

Many thanks to everyone who gave input on this question.
