[EP-tech] Re: Finding selected lang from configuration



Hi George

	I wouldn't worry about performance unless you're seeing specific problems.  However, you can get it from $repository->id() I believe.  Don't assume there's be a database lookup, as its

	I would also recommend the following changes in syntax for readability:

		%$v1{'lang'} becomes $v1->{lang}
		%$v1{'text'} becomes $v1->{text}
		${$$vals[0]}{'text'} becomes $vals->[0]->{text}

	Best Wishes
