Hello. I'm a software developer and try to fix some disturbing problems in Gramps. Unfortunately there's more to Free Software than meets the eye so patches often get relegated since I'm not an official Gramps developer. I'll post the links to my bug reports with patches here so that perhaps it can help someone. Additionally I'll post links to patches which make Gramps better for me but do not classify as bug fixes. Hopefully they'll make it better for you too. My position is not by any means backed by the official Gramps team. If you want to try these patches bear in mind they're "Third-party patches". You might need to create an account in the bug tracker so you can download them which is not complicated. The patches are for Gramps 3.2-3.3 (current Trunk) but should apply with some fuzz to any problematic or recent version.

Note: many of the patches have eventually been accepted and applied to Gramps. I'm leaving them here anyway. Be sure to check whether your version of Gramps does not already offer the correspondent functionality.

Third-party patches

Bug fixes

Detailed Descendant Report – fix for "Family notes and attributes are not displayed in reports" (Gramps 3.2-3.3)

Other

Detailed Descendant Report – standard position for child-list descendant numbering (Gramps 3.2)

Gramps' Detailed Descendant Report is quite complete but there is a point in which it deviates from classic descendancy reports. The descendant numbers in the child list are put to the right of their name which makes it uneven. The patch in the link below fixes this putting child numbers at the far left as most descendant reports do.

Detailed Descendant Report – option for d'Aboville numbering (Gramps 3.2)
Detailed Descendant Report – "+" sign for children with succession (Gramps 3.2)
Detailed Descendant Report – fallback for child-list birth/death strings (Gramps 3.2)
Descendant Report – option for de Villiers/Pama and Meurgey de Tupigny numbering systems (Gramps 3.2-3.3)
Descendant Report – option for inclusion of information of marriage (Gramps 3.2-3.3)

Changing the default family relationship type from "Unknown" to "Married" in Gramps

If you'd like to change the default family relationship type from "Unknown" to "Married" in Gramps, do the following. Exit Gramps, edit the file src/gen/lib/familyreltype.py in your Gramps source code directory (you may need to be root) and change the penultimate line from

            value = self.UNKNOWN

to

            value = self.MARRIED

then restart Gramps.
