Dear Christian,

as you're aware, the package iso-codes is normally updated once a month,
the next upload would be on January 1st. Should I proceed as usual with
the upload, or would that ruin the D-I statistics? As we're in really
deep freeze now, translation updates are no longer accepted for
migration to testing, although I've seen at least one package getting an
exception from that rule.

In short: to upload or not to upload, that is the question. ;-)
