Presumably is the
most relevant page for someone with credibility.  However, as
Montenegro has an army and a navy, you have the wrong locale.  It's
still waiting for a language code.  See the language family panels
at and for the extreme

But in short, yes we need the extra Cyrillic letters с́ and з́  and
Latin letters ś and ź for the exemplar characters in sr_Cyrl_ME and
sr_Latn_ME (or should that be sr_ME?).  I can't work out the status of
Montenegrin Latin {sj} and {zj}.
