Oktie,

We (LOD community in general) really needs to know when this matter is 
going to be fixed. I say this because last time around I assumed that 
what you mention above would have happened.

Once this is done, we will need to update DBpedia amongst other Linked 
Data Spaces.

Please make an announcement here once the fixed dataset is ready.
