Bug Description

As people in Taiwan are not comfortable with being listed as a Province of China, please change it just to "Taiwan"

This appears in https://myapps.developer.ubuntu.com/dev/account/ (see attached screenshot)

Hi, thanks for reporting this bug.

In order for us to be able to have a look and fix it, we need more information. Would you mind telling us in which page in developer.ubuntu.com are you seeing Taiwan being listed as a province of China?

Please use cultural insensitivity/general terminology[1].A nd please do not follow ISO 3166, in this case, using `Taiwan' and `region' or `location' shoude be more neutral.

Thanks a lot for your input.

We had the same issue while developing the Loco Directory, which is also a Django web application such as MyApps. Here is the bug for reference:


In short, the fix was to use 'common_name' instead of 'name' in iso-packages.
