2000-11-14 Thread Brad Clements
I have Python code that I use outside of Zope, and inside Zope via external methods. This code uses database adapters (anything version 1 or later). When my code is used within Zope, I have in the past had two database connections from within the Zope process. One connection is the actual

Juan, thanks for shining some light towards this murky area. Maybe ZWiki and other zope products need to be LGPL or dual-licensed, maybe the zope license can use some refinement. I for one won't know without seeing some enlightened discussion of the issue. This stuff is unsexy but important.

[Zope-dev] Two glaring omissions

Hi, I've been working with Zope for almost two years now, and there are two things that I feel is missing in the interface: 1. The ability to add a Base class after the class is created 2. The ability to rename properties after instances of the classes have been created (and have the data
