Bug#910632: iso-codes: ISO 3166-2 is out of date (specifically missing 2017-11-23 changes to CN)

Julian Calaby
Package: iso-codes
Version: 4.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The ISO 3166-2 data provided in this package appears to be missing changes from
2017.

Specifically the short codes for CN are listed as numbers instead of Alpha2
codes (i.e. CN-11 or CN-21 instead of CN-BJ or CN-LN)

It's possible that regions of other countries are also affected.

This was implemented in ISO 3166-2 on 2017-11-23 and appears to have been part
of the SAC 2007 changes.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:CN
or https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:code:3166:CN

I must point out that this is not causing me any specific problems with any
particular Debian package, however this package's data has become an
authoritative source for a downstream package that I'm using.

Thanks,

Julian Calaby

Hi Julian,

thanks for your bug report, I've now updated the names and codes for
China in iso-codes. They'll be part of the next release.

Regards,
Tobias
