==Newly added but not on wiki==
* Family Relationship Tool [https://github.com/gramps-project/addons-source/pull/346 Families - when the Relationships of a long list of named fathers and mothers are shown as "Unknown", to change all the "Unknown" to "Married" as a batch.]
=Bare urls - let's hide them?=

::I found a tgz icon but it was not free for use. FYI the Download pages in other languages using [[File:Download_link.png|thumb]]
which probably needs to change to an icon with no word. --[[User:Gioto|Gioto]] ([[User talk:Gioto|talk]]) 23:58, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
 
:::>> ''By the way, it is a bare archive filename rather than a URL in the add-on table.)''
Yes I'm aware, the idea is to get rid of the name which really serves no purpose for the normal user and to make the table more compact. --[[User:Gioto|Gioto]] ([[User talk:Gioto|talk]]) 00:05, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
 
Agreed that a text-based download icon isn't appropriate for an international tool.
 
(As a personal observation of no consequence... I think downloads used to be a distinction that had importance when data transfer rates were such a big issue. We're downloading content with every click when we browse. We just store it in a temp space & discard. And it still is an issue for bulky downloads... like the Gramps installers. But these 'downloads' are smaller than most of the images. That isn't a consideration for what should be done... just an evolution that I find to be a curiosity.)
 
Tango SVGs are available from Wikimedia Commons. It would be a simple matter to layer a Python logo dropping into the carton with any of the free SVG editors.

I've discovered that there is a serious flaw in hiding the filename. When you click on these links in Chrome, the browser does a silent download. The only feedback is a progress bar In the border of the titlebar. A file is added to the downloads but the user does not know what filename to seek among the other files.
If the filename isn't displayed in the table, you can't just open a download folder window next to the table and match the download.
 
If you found an option to collapse the column like you can hide table rows, that '''''might''''' be a viable option. However, Sam has replied that information hiding wasn't acceptable in other places as it created a conflict for the printable page feature. (I had suggested collapsing the Download section for each OS. My thinking was that the instructions not related to the user's OS were distracting... well, to be brutally blunt, the Linux section was been horrifyingly convoluted to the typical Win/MacOS user downloading a simple GUI-based installer. It does not make a good first impression.)
 
 
=Possible Automated generation of report/addons etc=
Could possibly be revived , looks like it was abandoned 5 years ago, but something like this could cover all builtin reports/tool/plugins etc.. and third party addons?
 
* GRAMPS reports examples: This page provides examples for most of the GRAMPS reports, for each GRAMPS version.: These reports are generated automatically. https://belissent.github.io/gramps-example-reports/
* Code: https://github.com/belissent/gramps-example-reports
 
in response to [https://gramps.discourse.group/t/where-is-there-documenation-for-how-addons-txt-lines-are-generated/1252/4]
 
What do you think?
