Yes.
If you are publishing GBs or even TBs of data, then it is expected that
there will be errors. We don't want that to discourage people.

I think it may be useful to have some more categories.
Many of the reports seem to be type error, but there are also data
(instance?) ones.
So http://dbpedia.org/page/President_of_the_United_States report is an
example.
Now it might have been a mistake by the dbpedia people in the acquisition
code, a mistake in their data, a delay in harvesting, or a delay in the
source data.
Or an error in the source data (as with the Afriston/Alfriston problem in
unlocode).
Encouraging people to help data publishers by encouraging them to find out a
bit more about why the problem arose would be really good.
I think the really important category is whether it is a source data or SW
publisher data problem.

By the way, seeing as most of the descriptions are single lines, it would be
great to see the first line or so in the summary, so I don't have to keep
clicking.
Best
Hugh
