I know that KDE also included (at least in the past, don't know now),
the Quebec's flag when you chose French Canadian language (or layout or
something). This was pretty close to when Quebec had their referendum to
separate from Canada. I didn't see too many Canadians resigning because
KDE had Quebec's flag!
As was pointed out elsewhere on the list, there are a bunch of
programs that include flags, and lists of countries, within
Debian. This could be refactored into a single collection
(in a single directory).
IMHO, I think it is childish to resign because of something really
stupid like this. If the country name is wrong according to
*international* regulation/law, then file an RC bug against the software.
I'm quite saddened at the state of the world that this decision
reflects. Hypothetically speaking, if KDE has a theme that reflects
native culture of Tibet, and uses Tibet's flag to describe it, does this
mean that their website will be censored by China? From Herbert's
extreme reaction, I must conclude yes.
