That is official status of Kosovo i Metohija. By international agreement, it is not recognized as a country, but got special status within Serbia until agreements and decisions of its final status are made. That is on going process which is going hard and slow as both Serbian and Albanian side have strong claims and expectations.
By international agreement, when Kosovo name is used it must have asterisk and note that explains that status. Even that is not fulfilled in OSM.
I am not sure what you have done. Until now, when few of us took time and extensive effort to provide Serbian language for map of Kosovo and Metohija, existence of name:sr tags was just minor and symbolic. Even now, when name_sr is populated, it is still unusable for Serbian people as there is no rendered map that displays map using name:sr tags.
Exactly - but it is forced.
There is obviously no Serbian language in name tags in Kosovo and Metohija OSM map, not even in areas where population is 100% Serbian and where Albanian language is not used at all. Name tag is exclusively reserved for Albanian names (which are actually Serbian names but albanized, as Albanians do not have their names for vast majority of places in Kosovo and Metohija).
Both laws of Serbia and Kosovo clearly state that all signs must contain both Serbian and Albanian language. Regardless of that, OSM shows exclusively Albanian language.
When, in some past, we tried to fix that and make both languages equal on OSM map, as they should be, we got clear warning from OSM administration that Serbian language in name tag is not allowed and that anyone who tries to add it there will be banned from OSM.
Kosovo in OSM is not named as defined by international agreements but as Albanians like to cal it. Borders are not marked as international agreements defined but, again, as Albanians like them.
And you say is not forced?
Exactly, that was situation while Kosovo i Metohija was part of Yugoslavia and also while it is in Serbia, and even if it gains its independence already made laws say both languages must be used equally. Albanian language was never used as only language on signs. If there are Albanian only signs in Kosovo and Metohija, that is clearly against even their laws. But, in in OSM map, only Albanian language is used in name tag.
That said, I already stated that, right now, I do not care about name tag. I care about name:sr tag not to be vandalized. I posted plain technical question and that is all I asked about.
I did not even have intention to discuss this topics you brought up. I responded for the sole reason that your claims are seriously wrong and it should not stay uncovered for people who eventually stumble upon them.
