Here are the links leading to the different versions:
es_ES =>
es_CR =>

Both of them have the name "Español", so when selecting the language from the WordPress dashboard, you could select the wrong one without realizing.

  • Component changed from General to I18N
  • Focuses administration added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to

Looks like this has been fixed in GlotPress (The data-source of the API):

The native name for es_CR has been updated from Español to Español de Costa Rica.

I'm going to leave this ticket open until we update GlotPress locales on since it affects core.
