History

#1 Updated by Andreas Müller 3 months ago

I don't know if we really need "db preference" as explicit value. It makes it more difficult to understand and there is almost no added value (compared to "default". So we only need "default" and the list of explicit values. If "default" is chosen then the preference is deleted from the local preferences.

I would show the value of the db preference in the drop down, but with ("global") or ("db") behind

OK, if this is not an explicit entry but if it is only added to the anyway existing entry for this value. Maybe "recommended" is another possible label. A bit long but standard for many such cases.
