In the undumped list, some entries refer to different revisions/regions of already dumped games (for example, the World region of Fighting Fantasy from Data East).
I think we should agree on one standard.
a) we list every known undumped revision/region of every dumped game
b) we don't list known known undumped revisions/regions of dumped games
c) we list only significant known undumped revisions/regions of dumped games, with the lister explaining in the game page why that revision/region has particular significance (for example, different gameply, different graphics, adaptations...)

Since MAME would treat them as all separate sets, I would choose option 1: we list all known undumped revisions.
A thing that could be done to avoid excessive duplicate informations is to do one single page for each game, and list inside of it the different undumped revisions.

Yeah, I think it would be better to list them in a subpage, otherwise cps2 games with dozens of regions/versions would clog up the entire undumped list.

OK, so we should do 1 page per game, listing all different revisions we know in the same page.

I just come accross this problem:

Border Down (Rev A) -> is dumped and in MAME -> a page for it is already in the wiki category:dumped
Border Down -> is not dumped and I have to prepare a page for it

I have 2 options:

1) I make a new page for it, including a link to the page for the already dumped one
2) I update the already existing page, adding information for the undumped revision, and putting it both in category:dumped and in category:undumped (but what I do on the main list? do I list it?)

I would prefer option 1) but your opinion is highly appreciated

I would edit the already existing page to show the undumped title and note in the page text that Rev A is already dumped.
