So to fix that up I think, "oh we can just give them all the same name... But then, how can be we be sure each definition matches the other 2?" ... hmm, "just merge it into one and put it somewhere that can be accessed from everywhere."
Saying that I don't know what the project best practises are for locations for sharing such things, but if nothing exists then maybe this would be a good time to invent somewhere. Maybe someone with more experience can chime in and give advice on this? Regards David Rowley
