Suggest:

These features are provided for locales which define "alt_mon" and/or
"ab_alt_mon" in their locale source data.  This release includes such
alternative month name data for the following languages: Belarusian,
Croatian, Greek, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, and Ukrainian.

Thank you, Carlos.  With this change I'm going to push it soon.
I believe it's a good idea to update the list of the recently changed
locale data.

Rafal
