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

Quoting John Hasler (john@dhh.gt.org):

In United Nations. We're not talking about United Nations there, we're
talking about International Standards Organisation, which is by the
way a community of National Standard Organisations mostly, so
certainly not a USA organisation.

I don't have currently net access, but it is perfectly possible that
Taiwan, or the Taiwanese National Standards Organisation is indeed
member of the ISO. Or maybe not. 

Again, in *this* thread, I will just try to avoid misunderstandings or
wrong interpretation be spread out. 

Deep discussion should go into -boot....I just sent a few facts there
about all this....(however, with some intermittent net access
currently, the discussion is not really easy)
