Current Priorities and Tasks

For the time being, the main work is being done on implementing the new English Danish Location structure. That includes adding new location categories, including the Location CIB and other useful info text.

Ongoing tasks for the members of this team are:

  • To view and help work on the Category Error Reports (see below)
  • Monitor the "Pending Categories" for each country
  • Helping members by adding new categories and answer questions regarding categories and categorisation.

Category Error Reports

Using the Category Navigator may actually be the easiest way to find category errors for a specific country. See the links to the Navigator of each country under the heading "Country specific info" further below.

These are the reports for ALL DBE Categories Suggestions, regardless location or topic. Please search for errors associated with: Nordic, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Sweden, or Early Scandinavia. To get more information about a specific error, click the link in the column to the left.
