Dear Jan,

I am sure your effort in contributing to the Freeciv project is appreciated by all. But still, I have to respectfully disagree on adding the Taiwanese as a new nation. First of all, I don't see any demand for a Taiwanese nation, so your first argument doesn't apply. Secondly, you can't compare Taiwanese with Mordor or Dunedain. It's not a fantasy nation. In fact, it's not a nation at all. Its offical name is Republic of China, and its people is still Chinese. It is not a new nation, not even in the sense as used in Freeciv. Finally, I just want to remind you again that not that long ago Germany was divided into two countries. I don't suppose you would make two nations for the Germans as well, would you?

Sorry for dwelling on this subject, and I don't want to drag politics into the game we all love. But as a Chinese, I feel that I should set the record straight on this issue.

Best regards,

Dear Freeciv-Developers,

At first I want to apologize for the patch which I
supplied and which is completely buggy and without
use. Sorry.

I am preparing a new, better version of it and then
send it again...

To the question if to add the Taiwanese or not:

I think, every nation should be supplied, if it's
possible, for which there is a demand. I don't think,
that it's important if that nation exists in reality,
since also the Mordor and the Dunedain are included,
which are only fantasy nations.

So... once again sorry for my completely useless patch
(don't waste any time trying it).

Best wishes,
