Revisited Data Fields

We are using a new process in this release, to make sure that certain types of fields are reviewed. The fields have been reset to Provisional, and you'll see them marked as P in the Dashboard. The number of fields to revisit varies by locale: for example, German has around 50 revisited fields while Amharic has around 100.
