What about to overwrite a gramps installation?
No, it's not really a change in design, since we're talking about the plugins in gramps/plugins here. These are maintained with the rest of gramps and are included in each release. What's more, the version change that we're talking about is to keep them working in the master branch. Needing to bump the version in gramps/plugins/*.gpr.py as well as in gramps.version is pointless. Regards, John Ralls
