[librecat-dev] how to have field remain in user after account save

Thanks, I copied the existing read_only_fields hook and made a new one 
for my user fields. It worked like a charm!

I have another thing I am trying to figure out. I need a cql query to 
return me only users who have a value for my new field. I am storing a 
list of publication ids in the user object and the field is called 

It looks like this in the user object yaml:

- 3853
- 3950
- 4118

Here is the field in store.yml:

       favorite_publications: {type: text, analyzer: tag}
           '<>': true
         field: "favorite_publications"

I imagine the cql to be like: bin/librecat user list 

However this query returns me the full list of users rather than the one 
user which actually has a favorite_publications field.

Can you advise on how I could achieve what I am trying to do?

Thanks for your help!

Can I configure the field in store.yml so that it is not removed after I save the user via the user's account form?
