WPXLOC Future Plans

Release Notes
Future Plans

Fix typos, correct errors

Make sure all entities have a "real" primary entry

This is the last release in the current file format.  The next release will be machine generated with columns lined up, in country number order, etc.

File reformatting - columns lined up, country number order, multiple occurrences of same prefix linked properly, etc.

Fix all geographic coordinates - this means finishing up the master database and moving away from wpxloc.raw as the base.

Check time zones from file

Expand certain prefix groups: JA, LA, OH, PY, SM, VE, VK, XE, etc.
