Which mappings do we need?

- We cannot tell you exactly what mappings to create, as we do not

  know which models you have installed

- However, it is always good to create mappings for payware aircraft

  (as we definitely can not buy all those).

- All Libraries we would like to have in the DB

Q&A: ====

- Should I use the `P3D` for P3D v1-3 or also for v4? We are currently

  evaluating P3D v4, for now use it for all P3D versions.

- I have the same model installed, but from another distributor, what

  should I do? This can happen, many models are part of multiple
  distributions. Normally there is not need to update the distributor.

- I have a model, but the distributor is missing? Request the

  distributor, you can already do the mapping and save your stash.
  Later you can fix the distributor. Or you can use `ZZZZ`, publish
  and later change/fix the distributor

- How can I efficiently create mappings?

- How do we set the distributor for FS, FSX, P3D standard models? See

  `mapfsstandardmodels`{.interpreted-text role="ref"}

- What are excluded models? See `excludedmodels`{.interpreted-text
