If this is true, it is an gross understatement to call it a political faux pas.
The chinese nationalist movement left China and took over Taiwan (Formosa)
during the red campaign.

To remove all 'face' from them in this rude, ignorant, arrogant manner,
virtually ensures that Debian never establishes itself in Taiwan.
This is not over statement, this is how it is seen from the perspective of the chinese mentality.

Mainland China persists in labeling Taiwan as 'Taiwan Province,'
but I see no good reason as to why Debian needs to become involved in this aspect.
To censure an entire country in this manner, and in doing so isolate them,
would appear to be the anti-thesis of open source.
