Package: bsdgames
Version: 2.16-5
Severity: normal


When I ran "quiz Africa capital" I discovered that several entries are
outdated and therefore wrong. I have only seen about five or six
questions, including:

Tanzania
---------
According to several websites I consulted, "Dar es Salaam" is no longer
the capital. The answer should be "Dodoma".
Compare:

http://www.tanzania.go.tz/profilef.html
http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/tz.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanzania

Nigeria
--------
In 1991 the capital changed. It is no longer "Lagos" but "Abuja".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagos
http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/print/ni.html
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/country_profiles/1064557.stm

I guess it would be a good idea to look through the whole database. There
might be many more outdated entries.
