Development

Limitations

  • As this is a textual report, there is no changes on database. It just retrieves information from database. No need to make a backup before using this report.
  • As code is not very complex, it should not introduce mistakes on output. If there is an error, then there is a valid email address at the end of the plugin.

See also the Repository References quick view, which does the same thing on active repository called. Thanks to Alex Roitman, who generated the "technical part" of the code ...
