My name is Stuart Simon. I am trying to write a plugin that adds a meta box that allows users to add files with descriptions to a post type. What I need is to allow my repeating group to have zero length. I cannot set any of the fields in my repeating group to be required because at least one record is always there. The key is that this is bad data design. I don't want meaningless records clogging my database.
I want to use your plugin because it allows adding custom attributes to its fields. I don't remember if nested repeatables are supported, but I thought of plugins other than CMB2 that allow me to set field attributes directly. ## Type of issue

Hi Stuart,

What I need is to allow my repeating group to have zero length.

I don't understand this part. Can you elaborate?
