90% of citizens in Kosovo are ethnic Albanian[1] and would probably
prefer the installer to help them select the Albanian language (coming
soon thanks to a translation sprint at FOSSCamp.cc) and mirrors in
Kosovo.  These are probably the two main differences from RS.  Kosovo
has EUR as currency, RS does not.

The locale chooser and the country list for mirrors could potentially
work in different ways too, e.g. maybe subdivisions could be introduced
for the mirror list.

It doesn't impact time zone

I don't have hard data about the keyboard layouts users prefer in the
region, but I've seen US style keyboards there.
