On Montenegrin request for new wikipedia I found this resolution:

**This request has been rejected following discussion with the Special 
projects language subcommittee 
Wikis should not be split along political lines, and we encourage 
Montenegrin editors to collaborate with Serbian editors in a single wiki 
or, at the very least, to have Montenegrin pages alongside Serbian 
pages. If political divisions make this difficult, please note that the 
Wikimedia Foundation's goal is giving every single person free, 
/unbiased/ access to the sum of all human knowledge, and not information 
from individual political communities.**

I am asking members of Special projects language subcommittee to give 
evidence that this request was driven by political lines. I am asking 
for reference in past that committee has made same decision on same 
situation. I am asking members of committee to give deeper guidelines to 
us what should we do next in this situation.

Also wider explanation of this decision could be helpful.

Thank you,

Darko Bulatovic

President of IT Association of Montenegro
