Subject Re: France geo questions
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 16:53:25 GMT
Also, with regards to my question about the France geoIds not matching 
those of ISO codes, the same incompatibility exists for USA state geoIds 
so it isn't really an issue either unless the community agrees they 
should match which entails more geo work.
