I guess the most popular will be
UPDATE mirrors_mirror SET country = 'United Kindgom' WHERE country =
'Great Britain';
but my question is:
since I don't see a dropdown list for selecting a country
but have to enter it manually each time I add a new mirror
will I have to rewrite the Country fileld for existing mirrors
after each country name change?
