Please check for typos and do not start work before 2018-01-01

This list was generated from: Media:Be-d-00.04-aag-01-20171024.pdf

General notes:

  • please set swisstopo:BFS_NUMMER to the new BFS ref for newly created boundaries, this is ugly but we need the BFS number for statistical purposes
  • in general it is a good idea not to immediately remove the old boundary relations, retag them to boundary=historic or similar
  • if place nodes for the original municipalities are missing please add them or else search and navigation will not work
  • Suggested merger workflow
