I have already convinced the ISO 639 for the spelling. I wish they will
accept it.

Ok. Please let us know when they do.

I have no reply from him yet, I will continue sending him messages until I
have any reply from him. Till that I will download the translation files
and do my work offline. I will upload the translated files back when I am
added to team.

I haven't found any recent communications or activity by him either,
so I think we should proceed. What we usually do in these cases is
officially give the current language team coordinator a full week's
time to reply. In case the coordinator hasn't replied by a week, we
will continue with appointing some other coordinator for the affected
language team.

So, Ismail, please respond in a week from now, and please let us know
why you've been unable to respond earlier.

Khalid, please remind us (publically and on-list) when a week has
passed from now. Also, please let us know (publically and on-list)
whether you are volunteering for the new Pashto language team
coordinator position. Please read
