Also note that some of the 'metadata' would be difficult to compare because they are not stored in the backup XML files, but rather in the Gramps initialization files.
According to the author, not all changes are pertinent. For example
, an object that just has anupdated timestamp is ignored, as are dates that may have irrelevantdifferences. Note that it will report changed order of list items as twodifferent changes. It doesn't say "tag list items 1 and 2 were switched"(which would be nice) but rather "tag list, #1 [ToDo]", "tag list, #2[Imported]" for item1 and "tag list, #1 [Imported]", "tag list, #2 [To Do]"for item2.
