We must wait two weeks - that's procedure established in the RFC that created this process in the first place. I have long contended that at the end of two weeks some action must always be taken: approve the request, deny the request or extend discussion for a new two-week period. IMO, extending to a new two-week period should only happen when clear and obtainable progress toward a decision can be achieved. I do not think extensions just so we can carry on discussions is a good idea. If there is specific information that is needed before a decision can be made, then at the end of two weeks the request should, IMO, be denied with an explanation of what is needed.

I think we agree on that point.

Hi, my comments are below; hope this will not be another registration that we prolong beyond the two-week review period unless for some reason it is necessary.

Are you saying we should wait the two weeks then?
I think we have held up proposals before too, and longer than two weeks; but ideally we should discuss this for at most the two-week review period unless there is new information or some other valid reason to extend that then either the subtag or not.
So I would not vote for waiting to hear from others for more than two weeks.

So it's not got an official grammar but it's in use which I think is the criteria,
so as soon as we have adequately discussed this, then I think we should register the tarask subtag for the variant of the script
& should wait no more than 2 weeks.
