I could ”probably” take care of that, but I’m far from an expert.

> I notice for the Dutch hackerspace there are 27 listed, but 13 are 'real' hacerspaces. The remaining are FabLabs, (commercial) makerspaces or just group of friends. Is there a easy way to difference between these groups? There is a [[Category:FabLab]] but as far i can see you cant edit this with the form (and not every fablab use this)

I’d really not want to start a discussion here what’s a hackerspace and what’s not, let’s just get the open/closed status updated, we can focus on the discussion on what constitutes a hackerspace later 😊 Maybe if a space self-identifies as a FabLab in his homepage, we could add it in the FabLab category, so we can decide what to to with them later on.
