The problem with listings of this kind is that they rarely contain the type of information I want to know (as set out in the first message on this subject, the links to Theravada immigrant communities can sometimes be informal, or simply confusing to everyone involved). It may be that some of the Chinese institutions that would interest me most do not describe themselves as Theravada at all.
