Description of problem:
When installing, Beijing is not listed, but Shanghai is.
Since Beijing is the capital of China (not Shanghai), this might prove
to be a political faux pas.
Please consider changing it to have Beijing in addition or instead of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to set the time zone
The time zone information comes directly from tzdata
The timezone names are not necessarily capital names. Furthermore, we make no
modifications to the upstream timezone data and there are no exceptions to this.
So if you want something changed in timezone data, you better find strong
arguments and argue about it with upstream, which is firstname.lastname@example.org
