: It's never too late! :-)  Of course it'll be a big job to convert existing records from inactive to offline, but we could make a note on category inactive saying that template is deprecated and link to offline, and make a new offline template that's identical to inactive.  You might want to put this on the [[Proposals]] page.

It's never too late! :-) Of course it'll be a big job to convert existing records from inactive to offline, but we could make a note on category inactive saying that template is deprecated and link to offline, and make a new offline template that's identical to inactive.
