Madras in India was officially renamed Chennai in 1996. I just marked Chennai as the preferred name in English in the alternate names list, but…
Should I instead have removed the “Chennai” entries from the alternate names list, and renamed Madras at the top level?
If yes to the above, should I then have put Madras in the alternate names table or are you not interested in historic names?
How long do such changes take to appear in the dumps?
Bombay -> Mumbai is a similar story.
