I believe that reverting back to "Taiwan" would probably end this
dispute, since it is a better option in my opinion.
As far as I know, many users of FreeBSD in Taiwan have been pissed of by
the use of "Taiwan, Province of China." However, no one has complained
about the name "Taiwan" yet. The people who have submitted followups
either have 1) a neutral status or 2) would like to see "Province of
China" removed. Therefore, changing the name back to "Taiwan" would
probably keep everyone happy.
If there are any users who support the addition of "Province of China,"
I urge them so speak up. If no one does, then there isn't a justified
reason to keep "Province of China" attached.
