We're assuming that the convention would dictate the one should add "Europe/Pristina" (the capital) and then it could use the same rules as for "Europe/Belgrade" or "Europe/Tirana" regarding the setting of time.

There was discussion last May starting with http://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2013-May/019292.html

The time history was that of Europe/Belgrade, and the other ex-Yugoslav
countries have tz links to there, so that is most appropriate;
going forward it may follow Europe/Tirane as that is where the
cultural links are, so may need its own zone if it is recognized
and makes its own changes.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis
