Hi Danilo,
  * Good news: Drepper committed your sr_CS locale yesterday
  * Bad news: it is committed in HEAD only, not 2.3 branch.
Hopefully vendors will backport this change into their glibc packages.

I am not sure that pushing sr_CS@Latn now is a good idea, maybe we
could have other changes incorporated in order to gain some credit.
Your other variant @ije is less controversial, but I do not understand
which name you are eventually advocating for.

Yes, and it is currently set to Petter's email.  Petter, could you
please ask if your mail address can be replaced by this list so that
we all receive localedata bug reports?
