Looking over the tags it seems that there is no clear distinction between ISO 639-1 language codes and ISO 3166-1 country codes. My understanding is that two-letter codes in tags are supposed to be country codes (language codes are embedded in the file name and subject to translation).

E.g. there are several Austrian events tagged as “de”.

P.S.: As a side note, the tag for Great Britain/United Kingdom is “uk” instead of the correct “gb” (which is my fault).

I agree that it makes more sense to tag by country than by language.

Full ack, and that’s how we automatically do it for the events registered with the tool. Please have a look at the tool’s country drop-down to see the country codes.

The the wrongly tagged events probably stem from manual edits or earlier policies I am not aware of.
