The standard behavior of Gramps [most current 5.x versions as well as 4.x and 3.x with which I have played in the past] is to conveniently create a Note record tied to an INDI or FAM or SOUR record when the gedcom importer detects a problem. I understand and appreciate the implementation, but I am working with some rather large imports with rather large numbers of error reports [100K], almost all of which I can simply ignore.
As far as I know the only way to purge the db of those unwanted Notes [selecting them from the list of all Notes present upon completion of the import], results in a record-by-record delete which is probably done in the context of a transaction with locking and logging overhead. It is taking upwards of 45 minutes for the deletes to complete.
I had thought I had once stumbled upon a configuration option which allowed the user to by-pass the creation of Notes for problem imports, but I cannot find such an option now, so perhaps I am confused with some other gedcom-capable loader in some other implementation.
Can anyone tell me if there is a way to either bypass Note creation, or, if not, if there is some bulk delete utility tool somewhere which might accomplish the deletes in a matter of seconds?
