What's the difference between these?

Back in October, the submissions form was expanded to allow better handling of new songs (eg submission of covers where the original wasn't on site yet either). Mathieu had some system/script to attempt to convert the generics to originals, but it wasn't able to get everything (a lot depends on how much info was provided in the submission). Other than that there's not a lot of difference - the generics are just leftovers where the system couldn't automatically convert/split them up.

Thanks. I take it then that if I want to submit a new song I should now call it an "original" and not a "generic?"
