Norwegian term or phrase: mer/mindrepris skip
Yet another terminological gem. It appears in a list of items - no other context. And I couldn't find anything in searches. Any idea what this could possibly mean?

This sounds convincing to me, but I just wish I could have found more examples of usage of the Norwegian term in Norwegian. Will take up with the client. Thanks, Tom.
