Re: why must Debian call Taiwan a "Province of China"?

The "standards body" in question is the UN, which has labeled the place
"Taiwan, a province of China" for purely political purposes. In normal
conversation the place is referred to simply as "Taiwan". Tacking on "a
province of China" is making a political statement. There is no
non-political reason to do it.

The people who live on the island call it Taiwan. What's wrong with using
the name they choose?
