Discussion of importEdit

These headings are generally useful, please change this section to suit your needs.

Import completion notesEdit

Data was imported successfully with OpenRefine, but the batch editing errored a few times, requiring the segmentation of the dataset in smaller batches. This indicates the presence of conflicting reconciliation matches. Those are very few, though, probably at most 10 entities. This is the case for hand curation afterwards, which can probably be done by investigating constraint violations like the presence of multiple "official website" statements.
