Hi, I've been experimenting lately with repoze.tm2 and integrating it into a CRUD app generator I'm writing as a google summer of code project for turbogears. This app can run standalone but should also be easy to mount inside a Turbogears 2 app (or any WSGI stack). I'd like to use repoze.tm2 for the later cases so both apps can share a transaction boundary.
However, one think that has struck me is that repoze.tm's middleware doesn't check the status code of the WSGI response and blindly commits if no exception has occurred. This will cause errors if, for example, an authorization middleware is stacked below (closer to the app) reopze.tm which converts some sort of SecurityException into 403 HTTP responses since repoze.tm will commit the transaction even though an error has ocurred (effectively circumventing the app's security policy). In fact, this exact example has bitten me in a production app (that's why I'm so picky) I know this can be fixed by placing this imaginary auth middleware above repoze.tm in the stack but perhaps the auth middleware also needs to participate in the transaction (if it needs a database to lookup users, for example). Since I had to set up a demo of my project today (http://rumdemo.toscawidgets.org in case anyone's interested) I ended up copying the tm middleware and applying the "fix" locally  but this suboptimal since TG2 will no longer be able to share transactions with Rum, unless we release a modified version as a separate egg we can both depend on, effectively forking repoze.tm2 for no good reason. So,is this really an issue for you guys? Any plans to implement a similar "fix" (mine requires WebOb but it can be easily rewritten without it, I'm happy to contribute something)? Am I overlooking something obvious which makes all this a moot issue? Regards, Alberto  http://toscawidgets.org/trac/rum/browser/rum/middleware.py#L9 BTW, Any plans to register repoze.tm2 at PyPI? _______________________________________________ Repoze-dev mailing list Repozeemail@example.com http://lists.repoze.org/listinfo/repoze-dev
