en: Macau should probably be Macao

Reported by: fredrik Owned by: pedberg
Component: other Data Locale: en
Phase: dsub Review: mark
Weeks: Data Xpath: 642d64e3ba8ce274


There's been some general inconsistency regarding the English spelling of Macao/Macau, but it seems to converge on Macao right now. This is evident from the local government's English website https://www.gov.mo/en/ which uses the O-spelling, as well as the front cover of a Macao passport, where the Portuguese print uses the U-spelling and the English print uses the O-spelling.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_Macau for some interesting information. For example, Macau seems to be the Cantonese transcription, as opposed to Macao for Mandarin.

Yes, "Macao". Agree with the report about the Macao SAR Government Portal and the difference with the Portuguese version.

+1 on "Macao" as well.

Note that I did not change
<metazone type="Macau">
since that is less visible and may have other implications?

Reverted fix due to build error. Sending to Peter to investigate.

Hmm. I re-made the original change and did not gat any resulting build errors this time. It is possible that my previous change to CheckDisplayCollisions.java in r14677 (for a different bug) addressed this, since it eliminated some spurious display collision errors due to aliases.
