My reading from above mentioned PDF (link below) is, that there is no
municipal merger Kallnach with Golaten by 1.1.2019. The merger is "In
Abklärung", what translates somehow like in clarification of how it
might work, pro's and con's, etc., what means, that no deal so far.

As well the website of Kallnach (http://www.kallnach.ch/) doesn't say
anything about.

In Wikipedia: Im Kanton Bern sind folgende Fusionsvorhaben am Laufen:
    * https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gemeindefusionen_in_der_Schweiz#Bern_3
    Amtliches Gemeindeverzeichnis der Schweiz - Angekündigte Änderungen
    2018 - Ausgabe vom 20.09.2018 (ersetzt Ausgabe vom 14.06.2018)
        * https://www.bfs.admin.ch/bfsstatic/dam/assets/6166612/master
          Seite 2:
          BE  304 Kallnach
              664 Golaten  -> Kalnach  Status: In Abklärung
                                       Gültig: ab 1.1.2019

Thus, very likely, there is no action needed by OSM in terms of Kallnach
and Golaten.

If there would be an other decision, local media (e.g. BZ or Bund) will
communicate it.
