The 7 provinces of Nepal replacing the 5 "Development Regions" in 2015

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces_of_Nepal the 5 "Development Regions" currently mapped in OSM were replaced by 7 provinces back in september 2015 (3½ years ago). Is anyone looking at doing something about that?
There is a bunch of related svg maps at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cate … s_of_Nepal

Thanks Hjart, you might reach KLL at http://www.kathmandulivinglabs.org/contact
Hopefully the provincial borders will be available as shape files provided by the Government of Nepal.

It is remarkable that only in 3 out of 7 provinces there seems to an agreement reached on names yet, see
