in no particular order:
I have XSLT that I use with the XML DDR to get what I want.
Any chance I could see the output from your xslt (say, for one of the starter solutions)? I'd love to see how much detail you gather...
In legacy systems I want to know if a script is still in use - is there any layout or any other script that calls it.
where is that 1 x 1 pixel named popover I go to with "go to object".
Fields and scripts references, including where they are on a layout.
Finding out if something is unused is often more important than finding out where it is used also.
It's not a file I created..... what are the privilege sets?
So, what questions do *you* ask of a DDR? I'm looking for those questions where you lament having to run a full DDR export / import cycle because you just have this one simple question...
What are the potential performance problems:
- # of layouts with more than one portal on it
- # of relationships with more than 1 predicate
- # of sorted / filtered portals
- # of sorted relationships
- ratio of stored / unstored calculations vs normal data fields
Yeah, we do use it, but with 580 elements on a layout it's rather slow....
Sounds like I need to do some torture testing. There was a pretty significant speed hit when I added support for calculating how much of the CSS had been overridden, but it was felt that the value was there... Perhaps I should make that optional...
Thank you all very much for your responses.
In the most general terms, people seem to use the DDR in the following ways:
1) Reference checking
2) Issue flags
3) Performance analysis indicators
4) General Survey (what items are there (fields, layouts, scripts), and what do they do?)
Any other categories? Questions that you need answered from a DDR?

That IS a GREAT value. Actually the one that I love the most !
If you want some heavy layouts for testing, contact me privately.
I would love some heavy layouts for testing, and I will contact you privately.
Or rather, I would if I could. For some reason I can't private message you (an error bar displays, but there's no error message. Wonderful).
Feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com.
