    uh... Amis, as well as all the other indigenous languages in Taiwan have
    absolutely nothing in common with Chinese, they are all separate
    languages and are also not related to each other... so, why use the zh- tag?
    In my opinion, either a standalone 'ami-TW' or the grandfathered
    'i-ami-TW' would be much better than the zh- tag.

    Where to complain to about this? :)
