Description

For example, the display name for Cyrl for "ru" changed from Кириллица to кириллица. For many others capitalization did not change. The change seems arbitrary.

The same think could be said for Serbian language names.

  • Owner changed from fredrik to mark

Russian native speaker confirms that it should be lower-case for mid-sentence use. Passing to Mark for Serbian input.

Good to know. The point was that there is currently a mix of upper and lower case. The question is whether this mixing of cases is desired. For example:

<script type="Batk">Батакская</script>
<script type="Beng">бенгальская</script>
<script type="Blis">Блиссимволика</script>
<script type="Bopo">бопомофо</script>
<script type="Brah">Брахми</script>
<script type="Brai">Брайля</script>
<script type="Bugi">Бугинизийская</script>
<script type="Buhd">Бухид</script>
<script type="Cakm">Чакмийская</script>
<script type="Cans">Канадское слоговое письмо</script>
<script type="Cari">Карийская</script>
<script type="Cham">Чамская</script>
<script type="Cher">Чероки</script>
<script type="Cirt">Кирт</script>
<script type="Copt">Коптская</script>
<script type="Cprt">Кипрская</script> UPPER
<script type="Cyrl">кириллица</script> LOWER, etc, etc.
<script type="Cyrs">Старославянская</script>
<script type="Deva">деванагари</script>
<script type="Dsrt">Дезерет</script>

transferring to Mr. Capitalization

This is the result of coverage. Names in modern (which vetters see) are lowercase, others (from a while ago, which vetters do not see) are titlecase.

No confirmation about Serbian script names, so I just changed Russian under this ticket and filed cldrbug 8209: to follow up for Serbian.
