OK framework folks, here is a summary of the current state of
things as per
our last discussion and some followup with the relevant devs. I'd
appreciate any additions or disagreements:
PLIP #102: PlonePAS:
Another mature third product that is in production use, and for
integration work is mostly done. Enfold is standing behind the
it is apparently (nearly?) ready to merge. The TODO list indicates
items that seem pretty important (role mapping, caching,
migration needs to be tested on a few reasonable sites. A big
question, what does this mean for CMFMember?
CMFMember will not work w/ PlonePAS, at all. chances are that it
never will. my current thought is to write a new product, based on
Membrane, that will replace CMFMember, providing a (hopefully
ContentSetup-based) migration path forward. i'm hoping to start
working on this at the snow sprint.
Does it matter?
i think it does. there are quite a few folks out there using
CMFMember, and this is going to be a show-stopper for all of them. i
think scrapping it and building a new product is the way to go, and i
don't expect it to be terribly hard, but i'm not going to be able to
do it alone. RockyBurt and SashaV have already said they want to
help, it'd be great if we could get a few more hands.
PLIP #113: GenericSetup
This appears to be in good shape, and while it's only a gradual
a more reasonable migration and setup infrastructure, it is a very
one. The way that portal setup is performed on the branch

i'm working on this now.
The production of some GenericSetup usage documentation would be nice
i'll get to that.
With some cleanup this branch should be ready to merge soon.
Would it be possible to convert ATCT to use GenericSetup as well
ATCT is already using GenericSetup, sort of... the setup profile for
Plone specifies explicitly what types should be in the types tool, so
the ATCT types are instantiated and used from the get-go, w/o the
need to do the ATCT installation migration process. it would be nice
to make this more complete, though. we'll see.
