That is not quite accurate. It was not a bug, and it has not been fixed. If in doubt, re-read the change description.

In a way you're right, I'm afraid. I can see two paths to the nowiki project putting this matter behind it: Complete unanimity (never gonna happen), or a full resolution of the issue (seems to be far off in the future). Any progress towards consensus seems to decay over time, causing endless rehashes of this tiresome debate. Sometimes it feels like a purgatory. Still, in a never ending train wreck kind of way, I must admit it's kinda fascinating to watch.

What significant parts of the nowiki community refuse to acknowledge is that the error lies not in using the label "norsk" for the language code "no", but in using the language code "no" for "norsk (bokmål)". If everyone was clear on this technical but crucial little detail, the solution and the way forward would be obvious to all, and completely uncontroversial. Alas, the solution eludes us, and the way forward is cloudy and riddled with controversy.

In the same way that biography subjects can't dictate the content of their own biographies on Wikipedia, the nowiki community does not own its language code. The language code means what it means, regardless of what some of us want it to mean.
