First Example of data located in this directory : committee/C00136853/info.yml and that refrences on file committee/C00136853/2000/10/15/7128.fec.yml
There are some more yaml files in the root dir, Template.yml is designed to be imported by the main info.yml and the fecid replaced. Sources.yml contains some sources of data in general.
More raw data that needs to be reviewed in the branch : master produced by running the code from the main rootstrikers-wikipedia fech.py.
