SITE CURRENTLY BEING REARRANGED. We apologise for the etc etc.
This is Canon Herald and Mortar Herals's shared doccumentation site, for things related to maitenance of the Canon lore website and all the order of precedence data on it (Canon Herald) and the software that supports it (Mortar Herald). Some articles are of use to both Canon and Mortar, but if you are confused, then you've probably delved too deep into the wrong side.
Source code and bug tracking is hosted by Launchpad:
New developers need to be added to the "gratian-team" team on Launchpad to allow commits, etc.
The complete data dictionary of Tables is mostly up-to-date, give or take a couple of columns here and there. It includes some explanation of how the data all fits together.
Gratian is the Windows-based database editing software used by Canon Herald and her deputies, developed and maintained by Mortar Herald. Included here are instructions on installing and using it (simple) and lists of the known bugs and missing features and how to work around/live without them (hellishly complex).
obsolete stuff about gratian kept for historical purposes
