Debugging

If there are councils that have been dismissed there will be a discrepancy between the number of councils listed on the index page and the number scraped. See the end of the debug output, for example:

79 councils listed 77 councils scraped

This scraper also checks the number of councillors collected against a number listed on the page being scraper. See the debug output for things to check.

Limitation

Because of some really nasty markup, a councillor for Hindmarsh Shire Councilis missed.

This should be:

  • id: "hindmarshshirecouncil/ronald_lowe"
  • council: "Hindmarsh Shire Council"
  • ward: "North"
  • name: "Ronald Lowe"
  • position: nil
  • council_website: "http://www.hindmarsh.vic.gov.au"
