I have had an idea that would make verification plugin queries quicker.
I quite often get a lot of queries like the following, especially after using the clone tool.
"The terms cellular manganese ion homeostasis (GO:0030026)and manganese ion homeostasis (GO:0055071)share the name or synonym "manganese homeostasis"."
It would be very handy if in the output of the verification plugin there was an auto-resolver menu on such queries that gives the following options for each term name in the sentence:
1) delete synonym
2) change synonym scope to broad_synonym
3) change synonym scope to narrow_synonym
4) change synonym scope to related_synonym
So it would look like this if the [X] represents the resolver icon:
"The terms cellular manganese ion homeostasis (GO:0030026)[X] and manganese ion homeostasis (GO:0055071)[X] share the name or synonym "manganese homeostasis"."
I thought about asking for a modification of the clone tool but I think it is best if the clone tool still keeps the synonym exact and then we fix the scopes manually using the verification plugin.
Does this seem like a thing that would be easy to implement?
