So, in Browse Matches and Pending Merges, I find this:
James McManus (McManus-2683) and James McManus (McManus-8) compare
Proposed by Peter Jones.
Approval from Earl Wyckoff for McManus-2683 has been recorded.
No response for McManus-8. Default approval.
Look good, so I click 'merge' and this comes up:
An approved merge proposal was found, so the merge can continue.
But then this big red banner:
We're sorry. One of these profiles is not Open and you are not on either profile's Trusted List. Although permission for the merge has been recorded, it would violate our privacy controls to enable you to complete the merge. Please post in G2G if you would like to discuss this. Thank you for understanding.
So how is this merge ever going to happen?
Are privacy rules hamstringing some WikiTree procedures? again ... grrrrr
