Comment 17 for bug 368060

Do you edit an SVG or PNG rendering of the images? Cause the PNG images just plays up on Inkscape due to the low resolutions involved.

Kenneth, I would respectfully disagree on 'not our desire to make things correct' -- the whole philosophy of the free software movement is the empowerment of the individual to collaborate together to get things correct, and in this case, neutrally-produced maps.

I use inkscape to edit the file. The hardest part is getting good
information not our desire to make things correct

Bug description:
When installing Ubuntu, I have to select the timezone. I notice that the map of Kashmir is incorrectly positioned and does not reflect the political situation of the volatile region. Ubuntu must keep political scenarios in mind to produce neutrally-labelled maps. The United Nations also produces neutral maps.

So this should be displayed when displaying maps of India, Pakistan and China: (See reference map:

* Select India (IST):
** India selected.
** Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh within India has a lighter shade
** Kashmir within Pakistan and China with an even lighter shade

* Select Pakistan (PST)
**Pakistan without Kashmir in standard shade
**Kashmir within Pakistan with a lighter shade

*Select China
**PRC standard shade
**PRC with Kashmir lighter shade
**PRC with Arunachal Pradesh with an even lighter shade.

Hope you can implement this in Ubuntu 9.10
