Forum OpenACS Development: Adding to the persons table

Posted by Keith Paskett on
I have a suite of application where it would be helpful to add to the persons table. The additional fields I need are middle_names, calledby_name, title, and suffix.

I noticed that there is a comment about title and suffix in the kernel create script. My question is whether these a fields that other would be interested in adding to the kernel data model. Otherwise, we will create another table with a 1-1 mapping to persons.

I'm happy to contribute the easy part of the fix--postgres data model changes and user forms. However, I don't have Oracle and haven't yet had a need for internationalization.
