Absolutely correct. It must be that way. But never fear, I've got the
modification forms all filled out and ready to send to Michael when the

I use WatchThatPage. Their service is free (although they'd prefer it
if I sent them a donation) and they send me a handy daily summary of any
changes that have occurred. As John pointed out, there are other sites
that perform the same service.
As an aside, I wish the ISO 639-2/RA would be as diligent about updating
their online code lists in response to Håvard's notices as I hope we can
be updating the registry.

If I ever decide to stop providing this informal service to the LSR (cf.
having the decision made for me, say by a runaway bus), I'll be sure to
let the LSR and list know in advance.

Very true. I agree that this should not be an official role or title.
Anyone can shake the Reviewer's shoulder and tell him.

Actually, for all the credit I'm being given for doing this, it's not
really that much work if you rely on a WatchThatPage to do the
chasing-down for you. I hardly ever visit the official code-list pages
manually once I've pointed WTP at them.
Put another way, if Debbie hadn't just clued us in about GG and IM and
JE, I would never have known until the MA announced the change; but I
would have known within a day thereafter.
