Does anyone have any objections to modifying some of the CMFCore
exportimport code to support changing aspects of items instead of
wholesale replacing them?
I would like to be able to do things like this:
meta_type="Factory-based Type Information with dynamic views">
<property name="Just replace the title">
<action action_id="edit" condition_expr="only-replace-expression">
of course delta profiles or however we end up supporting modifications
is a better solution, but I'm looking for something that is workable
'meta_type' is ignored if the object exists already. I guess you don't
propose to support meta_type changes.
Updating properties selectively should work already. AFAICS the only
missing part for your example is the non-purging (=update) mode
implementation for type-info actions.
I hope we can get rid of the non-purging mode in the long run, but the
delta profile based solution is still vaporware, so improving the
non-purging mode makes sense if you need something workable right now.
No objections here.
