Thanks!  Will get double check permissions and get that fixed.  For
the moment try granting public all rights to that sequence while I get
that sorted out.  Filed under bug 3387887

I am going to see what's going on.   Filed under bug 3387888

One way or another, we need something like this.  It's been on the
feature requests section for a while and been discussed since the
project began.  The biggest issue right now has been getting the
framework to a point where it even makes sense to start on it.  I
think we are to the point where post-1.3, we can actually get started
on this in earnest.  We'd still have to figure out the technical
details however.  Once we figure that out, I think we should solicit
help from the user and developer community in getting the help details
added.  It's a huge amount of effort and if one or a small number of
people have to eat it as unpaid work it will probably not ever get
done.  OTOH, if we create a good way of making it work, the I can do
some work on this gradually and other community members can contribute

My thinking is to tie to top-level template name and input id.  What
do you think?

 Bug  3387902.

Thanks for your feedback :-)  Just to set expectations, today, and
possibly tomorrow, I am working on the setup and migration tools.
After this I expect bugfixes to become a priority.  I have already
fixed a few of the ones you reported last time but I have a couple of
older reports I should get to before doing a lot more work on these,
so it may be a few days before I can get to them.

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers
