Description

I think it would be great if we could start to add information about the language status in the different territories:
http://www.unicode.org/cldr/charts/latest/supplemental/territory_language_information.html

Offical (or de-facto official)
National
Institutional suported
Lingua franca
Not recognized

We could also add them for subdivision level
(Catalan is official in Catalunia)

It is theoretically possible… but not clear what is supposed to happen with this ticket. Are you volunteering to provide data?

The way I see it we need to discuss exactly what categorize to use! There are different ways to categorize languages in different countries - what categories are most tangible to use within the scope of CLDR? I gave some suggestions already.

Yes I want to contribute with the data, but need to get clarified what categorize we will operate with first.

Some examples;

kent.karlsson wrote in issue 9919:

Not sure how "official_regional" vs. "recognized" are different. "Tornedalen Finnish"/"Meänkieli" is quite regional, whereas "Finnish" is not (Finnish is spoken by a large number of Finnish immigrants/descendants all over Sweden.

http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/ticket/9919

In Norway we have official languages, regional languages, and national minority languages, and also what is called "new minority languages":
http://www.sprakradet.no/Spraka-vare/Minoritetssprak/

I know that in Togo they have French as official language, then Ewe and Kabiye are considered as "Semi-official" then the Semi-official languages together with Tem and Ben are supported by the national aplhabetization office. In addition to this about 40 languages have status as "National languages".

Other countries have statuses such as "indigenous languages" such as the Native American languages in the US.

So before we start add such data we need to figure out how we can categorize these different statuses so they make sense across territories.
