Renaming "Serbian (Montenegro)" into Montenegrin

Greetings!

I wanted to ask if the change officially made by Unicode and the CLDR, of renaming “Serbian (Montenegro)” into Montenegrin will be done? Montenegrin language has been officially recognized as a separate language with its own code ISO 639-3 code “cnr” which is currently being aliased into sr_ME implying its old status of Serbian (Montenegro). What should be done is for the currently used sr_ME code to be displayed as “Montenegrin”, as the current name is outdated and not in accordance with Unicode.

There was a previous older discussion here which promised this would happen (see the last few responses from the Microsoft team) but for some reason it never actually materialized.

    Hello LukaBulatovic-2097, it seems CLDR has not completed the workitem you've submitted. We will proceed with your request once the CLDR committee completes the workflow at their end.
