I have the new merging interface in place now. You can merge from two
difference places. By selecting two people from the person list, you can
directly merge the selected people.
The Merge tool has been improved signficantly. gramps builds a list of
possible merges, and displays them in a list. This list consists of the
rating of the likelihood of a match, and the names and ids of the two
people. The list is sorted by the rating. Selecting an entry a clicking
on the "Merge" button brings up the Merge dialog.
1) You can now select the merges in the order that you want to deal with
them, as opposed to the old way, where gramps randomly selected a pair
for you to look at.
2) Duplicates are elimintated. You wont see X1,Y1 and Y1,X1 show up in
3) Merging people eliminates impossible combinations from the list.
Try it, and let me know what you think.
