Subject Re: start tackling EMPIREDB-99

Hi Rainer,

I suggest you kill the branch and make a new one where you make the
changes, I think you are the best person to do this change. I've tried
a few times but kinda got stuck.

Once the core module is updated I'm willing to help with the other modules.
