Thanks for the clarification.  Unfortunately, the resolution is rather confusing.

At L2, we have L2/12-012, labelled in the top right-hand corner as
replacing L2/11-130, and dated 23 May 2011 and at the first line of the
top right-hand corner labelled as ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2 N3976.

Meanwhile, at WG2, the file https://www.unicode.org/wg2/docs/n3976.pdf
bears in the top right-hand corner the reference numbers ISO/IEC
JTC1/SC2/WG2 N3976R and L2/11-130R and the date 19 April 2011.
However, in the title block, it bears two dates, 23 May 2011 and 11
February 2012.

It looks as though the sequence is:

Latest date  WG2 number   L2 number    Held in

2011-04-19     -          L2/11-130    L2

2011-05-23   N3976        L2/12-012    L2

2012-02-11   N3976R       L2/11-130R   WG2

L2/11-130R seems to differ from L2/12-012 by the addition of a section
about confusables on p9.  There might be other changes that I didn't
spot in a quick visual scan.  They seem to have the same repertoire of
additional points.
