I found a bug in Gramps and I wanted to report it in Mantis. Unfortunately, I forgot my password because I have not logged in for long. Is there a way to reset my password?
For those interested, the bug is in gramps/gui/editors both editperson.py and editfamily.py, method _local_init(self). If the edited object is found to be a new one (not already known in the DB), its handle is initialised with a call to create_id().
This spurious initialisation prevents using methods add_family() and add_person(). Instead commit_family() and commit_person() are used, bypassing some verifications. With the present implementation of dbapi.py, this is not important as redundant checks are made during the commit. However this is basically wrong and creates a link between GUI edition and DB details (a handle is an internal attribute of the DB and should not be visible elsewhere).
