The current variant URL https://sr.wikipedia.org/sr-el/Beograd will still work because https://sr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Beograd&variant=sr-el will be still supported and deliver the same result as https://sr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Beograd&variant=sr-latn. To support a new variant URL https://sr.wikipedia.org/sr-latn/Beograd a new additional alias definition can added.

I shall note, there were plans to use the codes sr-jc and sr-jl for sr-cyrl-ijekavsk and sr-latn-ijekavsk but I don't know that they were ever used in practice, though perhaps they maybe still dwell somewhere in MediaWiki code.

Typing "српски" or "srpski" will work until the very last letter- "и" or "i" is typed. Strangely that "Serbian" does not work too.

BTW, me and @Nikerabbit found a satisfactory solution for this at Wikimania 2016: in a certain regular expression, simply, instead of searching for the substring at the beginning of a language name, search for it at a word boundary. Not sure why is it not implemented.

Nikola_Smolenski added a comment to T121747: Serbian language does not appear for people from Serbia in Wikidata item pages.

OK, now Serbian appears, but with Serbian Cyrillic and Serbian Latin as separate languages. This means that all the Serbian content entered so far, which was entered under the code 'sr', will not be available. Has there ever been a discussion to use two separate codes for Serbian language? Was there a final decision? If yes, what could be done about old content?

Nikola_Smolenski updated subscribers of T7309: Localize captcha images.

Serbian (sr) is strange too. I think both Latin and Cyrillic are official there, but isn't it strange to ask for people to change input method (from Latin to Cyrillic, and vice versa) in the middle of captcha, like here?

Nikola_Smolenski added a comment to T138973: Show languages that a wiki community added to the top of the interlanguage list in the Compact list.

As I see it, the actual code change that is needed is that compact interwiki lists should have the feature to "force" some languages into the list - either by having a configuration parameter for that, and/or by recognizing Wikibase's sortPrepend.

I guess this could be solved if all the languages with names that have multiple words would have the words as aliases, so that they are matched by prefix. I guess Bahasa Melay is already this way.

Similarly, when I go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page and click on the gear icon next to "Languages", I get the "Language settings" window; now when I click on "Input" and "Enable input tools", the list of languages I get under "Language used for writing" is "English, shqip, magyar". This is probably the same underlying issue.

Well that workaround is not at all obvious, since while entering "sr", "srp", "srps" etc. only "srpskohrvatski" would appear, leading users to think there is no Serbian. It's not just that the search by language code fails, it's that the search by prefix fails too.

A new(?) development: while canonical URLs were apparently never really canonical, AFAICT so far Google was smart enough to offer them in the nice https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Page format. However, recently I noticed that it is often starting to offer them in https://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Page format.
