For the Country field, some guidance would be helpful. Full English
Name, two letter ISO code or what to use?
Good question. I was originally intending it to be a 2-letter ISO
country code, but the list on the (now defunct) fedora.redhat.com
has pretty country
names. I'm open on this - nothing's using it yet except the public
list. I had also intended this to be just an override from what GeoIP
reports - e.g. if GeoIP gets it wrong, here's how to fix it locally.
In addition to allowed countries you could also add something like
world-region or continent to group the entries, when the list grows.
Africa, Asia - Pacific, Europe, Middle East, North America, South America.
Can I get that from GeoIP already? If so, I'd prefer to do that.
Otherwise, the interface is pretty straight forward to use.
BTW: I tried to use an accented character in the comments field. That
caused also a Python error. So I removed it again.
I wanted to write 'On Internet2 & GÉANT2' and now I only wrote 'On
Internet2 & GEANT' without accent on the E. That works.
All the database fields are SQLObject Strings. Should probably be
Unicode fields instead? I'll look into that.
