City code lookups
The ME servers installed at each site have a local copy of the regional place names for the entire area that the federation covers, for ME libraries that's all of Alberta. There is a configuration file called
region_config.properties that contains entries for the URL to a canonical list that is referenced to create a local
region.properties file in your configuration directory. If there has been an update to the list of city codes, just delete or rename the
region.properties file, and the server will go and get a fresh one. The only exception to this rule is if the
"refresh" entry is set to "never".
