Hi Christophe,

The profiles are now here: https://github.com/GPII/universal/tree/master/testData/preferences . They were moved as part of work on this issue http://issues.gpii.net/browse/GPII-31 . Note you would need to register to be able to access the JIRA.

Regards,

Yura

In this case, a user might have a profile with application-specific settings that enable high contrast on the phone, but disable it on Windows. For example of a profile containing app-specific settings, please see  https://github.com/GPII/universal/blob/master/gpii/node_modules/flowManager/test/data/user.profile.123.json.

You can't infer one from the other, as far as I can see, so I would like to find a way to express this without needing the intelligence of a statistical matchmaker.
