We select the default title returned by the provider. It can be blank. Blank values (whether None or empty string “”) are saved as empty string in the database (TODO: check if this is true). Existing data problems
Some media items had incorrectly encoded titles [^1 - Link to a description of Unicode encoding problem in the “postamble”]. This is compensated for in the Frontend (link to the code that fixes title encoding). This problem has been fixed for the items that have been reingested after some time in 2020, but might still persist for items that were not updated since then. Link to issues for fixing the encoding in the catalog/api/frontend. Some Wikimedia titles have a shape of “FILE:xxx.svg”.
