Soil package "other"

In the soil package there is a term called "other" with the description "additional relevant information". Can someone enlighten me as to why we have this term in addition to "misc_param" for the soil package only?

Hi Chris,

The soil package originally comes from the Terragenome consortium, and we just took all their fields. Since misc and other seems to be redundant, I can omit one or the other, possibly the misc to keep to the original data fields.

Hi Pelin,
I'd have thought the misc_param would be kept for consistancy over all packages, the "other" term is only present in the soils package.

Yes that's also a reasonable approach. I guess they won't mind not keeping the "other"
