Re: Re: Must debian-installer use iso-codes package when choosing country?
My original question is:
"Must debian-installer use "iso-codes" package when choosing country,
Even though it will hurt some people, like people who living in Taiwan?"
And I think your answer is "YES".
We, the debian users in Taiwan, Hongkong and mainland China, have
discussed about this for several days.
You may visit http://moto.debian.org.tw/viewtopic.php?t=3192 for more
We all consent that to replace "Taiwan" with "Taiwan, Province of China"
is not suitable.
It don't match to the real political situation,
And it will bring a mountain of political disputes.
People who install Debian via debian-installer will find that "Taiwan"
was replaced with "Taiwan, Province of China".
They may not detect immediately that this country code is based on ISO-3166,
But they will think that Debian is discriminating against Taiwan people.
It will not be a very good first impression to Debian users.
And, It is a gross disparagement to Taiwan people.
Thus some of us may refuse to use Debian anymore.
Sorry, but I think it is necessary to repeat again,
I suggest that debian-installer should not use the data form "iso-codes"
package as country code.
We should try to found something else to replace the "iso-codes" package
