Is there any way I can register a "please leave my objects alone" request? I don't care that there were once rules about descr: I can edit my objects if I choose to.

Out of 93,015 objects, 323 were not reverted automatically because the user had made changes since the script ran. In cases where users fixed the whitespace we left the objects as they are. We have dealt with the others on case by case basis - taking care that we only revert the formatting problems we caused. > > This means that "descr:" is back for the moment. > > With regards to the warning given about this change. It was a conscious decision not to send notification for 93,015 objects because this would overwhelm our support queue with questions, regarding what we believed was change that was discussed in this working group, and that would have little or no operational impact. But as Job mentioned, even though this change was discussed at length in this working group, not warning ncc-announce in advance was an oversight. > > Going forward we suggest that we postpone the clean-up, warn ncc-announce in advance, and only run the clean-up some time later allowing stakeholders to be warned, and possible follow-up discussion to be had in this working group. Thanks for that. I suggest that we postpone this for no more than one month from now. If there will be an extensive discussion here or at the ncc-announce, we can always extend this time.
