I hereby repent of the snarky comments I have made lately about MLS. ;)

Perhaps I will write a different module that is driven primarily by the LUWS file to select the set of familiies that populate a KML file. (I think I would have to require it to be a subset of the MLS universe of families, which would still drive the master geocoded table of addresses. So an addres...

That might not be true in all cases. Ward members can request a Ward list from someone with access to the MLS computer, but they can't get these themselves. Whether this is to be given out should really be under the direction of the local Unit leadership. The LUWS on the other hand, IS available fo...

I think the bottom line has to be that the Bishop, or someone he delegates, needs to consider how the data will be used and who will have access to the data and decide whether any filtering of the data is necessary before the data is released. I have no problem with this concept, and neither does m...

To my knowledge, there is nothing in MLS to signify a "no not contact" or otherwise restrict information. The way I've seen that done is to blank out the fields in MLS itself, such as putting "unlisted" in the phone number field. Those who need to know the phone number is given it outside of MLS. S...

The LUWS exclusion is handled by a ward web admin through administration interface. He or She could be consulted. Other than that, as you suggest, it would need to be done by comparing the data from the two sources. The only time that comes to mind, where this situation ought to be considered is if...

This is great! Thanks for doing this. If you are in agreement with the following, you might consider including something like this in your readme: Members can optionally ask their ward web site administrator to exclude all or part of their contact information from the LUWS. Depending on the intende...

I think canary yellow should work nicely. Edit the value of the two constants FamilyColor and HPColor to "ff7fffff" to change them to canary yellow. ... In any event, I do see the problem you describe for most users. Hope the change above solves it. Oops. I that was too quick and too dirty. All it ...
