    Does you Linux Calendar tell you when they changed the name from Upper Volta to Bukina Faso?

    This is why the calendar is so quaint. These calendar lists were put together, in some cases, decades ago, and I don’t think there is a system for maintaining them.

    I doubt very much that Bukina Faso’s independence day and Upper VOlta’s independence day are the same. It’s possible, I suppose… It would be interesting to look it up.
