Excerpt from change request document:

During a sociolinguistic survey in November 2004 we visited the people group known in Chad as Mimi. They call themselves Amdang and their language Amdangti. There was no evidence of other Mimi populations and other Mimi dialects. The population figure of both Mimi and Amdang as recorded in the Ethnologue 15th ed. is roughly 40,000, but these appear to be the same 40,000. I suggest collapsing the entries for amj and miv into amj, thus calling the Mimi language of Chad "Amdang".
