I've updated the information above. In addition

  • Layout for image description pages is available: User:André Costa (WMSE)/CoA
  • OTRS permission has been logged
  • Total number of images: 340
  • Suggested filename: <name> <coaType> - Riksarkivet Sverige.png e.g. Blekinge länsvapen - Riksarkivet Sverige.png

Missing/open issues

  • (awaiting) Still waiting for the links with which to connect each image back to the relevant webpage at the archive
  • (not doing) Categorisation by municipality/county/province would be desirable but the current category structure means that these must be manually identified (also they are not yet linked to wikidata)

Any feedback is welcome but unless any flags are raised I'll go ahead with this during the coming week. /André Costa (WMSE) (talk) 13:27, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
