#4095 closed defect (invalid)

Nominatim doesn't support alt_name:*

Nominatim ignores data tagged as alt_name:language.

As of 20.11.2011 reproducible with the city of Tskhinval(i) in South Ossetia. name:ru is Цхинвал, alt_name:ru is Цхинвали. However, searching for Цхинвали does not give the desired result (i.e. the city).

Steps to reproduce: 1) Open 2) Search for Цхинвали 3) Look at the Nominatim results. The city is only found by GeoNames?.

Works now. Just a case of out-dated data.
