Description James MacGregor 2012-12-18 09:44:43 PST
Add a third option to the Masthead to allow a JM-editable free-text form field so that JMs could create and manage their masthead any way they see fit.
Comment 1 Alec Smecher 2012-12-18 09:47:42 PST
In OMP the masthead consists entirely of a free-form text field and I think that's a much better solution than either of our current approaches (automatic population from the Roles list, or a Manager-curated controlled listing).

The only downside to this is that it must always be manually updated, but I think that's a very minor con.

Good to know, Alec. I think Matt may be looking at this bug as part of a custom development for Coaction (which is on the 2.3.x line), but 3.0 would be a great target for replacing the entire masthead mechanism in favour of what we have in OMP.

Done as part of mondo bug #8094.
