Hi Diego,

I understand your description. Being somewhat new here, I was waiting to
ask one of my supervisors whether I could add your suggestion to
Greenstone Trac's list of enhancements. Fortunately, Katherine Don would
have done so already, as stated in her response to your initial mail on
this topic.

Thanks for your suggestion, it's very helpful to learn of what features
are actually useful to those of us using the software in real-life
situations. I do not know when exactly it might get implemented, as I
think many of the defects identified in Greenstone have first priority.
Next to those, there are other enhancements that have been in the schedule
for some time.

Regards,
Anupama
