Best Practice for templates? Create one or mod existing?
« on: November 16, 2011, 09:06:23 pm »
I am working on the Insteon PLM for 2412n adding thermostat compatibility the code change should work for the Insteon powerlinc modem as well.  I have most of it working now, but the generic thermostat template is missing some items.  Should I add the items to the generic template and submit it for change, or create a new one.  It is missing 3 elements.

editing existing templates is discouraged simply because people usually do it incorrectly and for the wrong reasons. however if an existing device can be improved without breaking its existing functionality, then by all means edit it.
