still exist? Last but no tleast, what about the issue with the back button
and choosing a library? We really want to merge and if the only remaining
issues are small things we'll try to get some help on finishing it.

Hello Liz,

Thanks for asking :) I have quite a few issues unfortunately. But I can not
judge how critical they are. In general, I think all the issues mentioned by
Ross are fixed. Only half of the issues mentioned by you and David are fixed
:(. The list of issues in TODO.txt is valid but let me list the major ones
that might affect the decision of this PLIP's merge:

 - History (back button) in AJAX calls doesn't work yet. Means I didn't have
time to implement that JS library and test everything;
 - Not all settings from "Advanced search form settings" tab of Search
control panel are taken into account by the new search results view;
 - RSS link doesn't work.
 - in addition, I have discovered a couple of days ago that one of my tests
is failing in that means that the main JS script of the
package is not installed into a Plone site by default when creating a site.
I have already asked on IRC and emailed David Glick but no solution yet.
Interesting thing is that it worked fine and all tests were passing a month
ago - the last time I touched the package.

Frankly I don't think I have a lot of time to work on the PLIP in the next
couple of weeks, but if the framework team will decide that the remaining
issues (assuming the failing test and script's registration are fixed before
merge) are not critical for merging I would be happy to keep working with
this PLIP and will do my best to make it working for 4.1 If the remaining
issues will not let the PLIP to be merged I am sure we will be able to make
it better for 4.2 or, not sure this is possible though, 4.1.1.

Please let me know what you guys think about this.
