Hi Doug

Thank you for the heads-up.  I always am running on an Ubuntu derivative and using the same version of GRAMPS on all my devices, so I was not certain. 

If there is that danger, I guess I would encourage the idea of allowing effective Cloud sharing/use of GRAMPS DBs.  I certainly can understand if the idea gets turned down because it would require a DB rewrite.  Because if we were to recommend one of those, I'd recommend going to a Cloud capable multi-concurrent user DB altogether... a guy can wish.  ;) 

In closing, I'd like to say that I certainly appreciate all the hard work the GRAMPS team puts in on this toolset.

Pax Vobiscum,
...mark (Mark Rabideau)

Actually, it can matter what OS, and can actually matter what version
of the specific DB software. I would be very careful with this
strategy. You can use dropbox, etc, but I would use it to store your
latest Gramps XML backup, not your current, live data.
