Yes. Thank you for explaining. I suggest the paragraphs can be put  
into the documentation.

I use the data source as PonTaurus and upload a 'duplicate PonTaurus'  
resource, although not registered, it takes forever to the next page  
after clicking "publish". You can check it on http://ipt.gbif.org.

Also, I am not sure if you or Tim had received a message I sent on  
Mar. 12th regarding the updating of geographic coverage information.  
It seems the problem still exists. I've saved after dragging a region  
but can't see it when I navigate back. Or should I report it on the  
google code anyway?
