What's a "minimalist Borgia style" citation?
It's the one that I intend to define myself. Borg is the name of my
Gramps database, WikiBorgia my personal wiki, and I'm still trying
to figure out whether I'm related to the family with that name on
So it was sort of a pun, with a serious side though. I noticed that
the issue of citation templates is still open in GedcomX , and
you seem to be involved there too, and I am concerned about the
subject here in this way that, when I send a Gramps XML with
citations that use my own style, I may need to include the templates
that I used for that, so that the receiving user understands what
all that stuff is about. The downside of that however is the same as
that of using custom events and such in a way that they may pollute
the receiving user's database.
To prevent that, I'm considering using only a small set of generic
attributes like folio, page, line, volume. If they are part of the
standard vocabulary, I can create my own templates for input of all
sorts of citation types, but rely on the receiving user's config for
the conversion of a set of attributes to a citation string.
