[Zope] How about removing broken things like Confera and ZDiscussions?

2000-10-18 Thread Cary O'Brien


Why are things like ZDiscussions and Confera even on the
zope download pages?  They don't work!  It would be better
if they were moved to a section called "Things that worked
once but aren't being maintained so they don't work
any more".  Otherwise people starting out might see all
these seemingly useful things and get frustrated when
they dont work.

Arrrggg.   I just want a bulletin board that works!

I know what you are going to say, so I'll start digging
through the python code before you yell at me...

There is a ZDiscussions that works. It is called ZUBB.
 
http://www.zope.org/Members/BwanaZulia/ZUBB
 
But, I agree, old product that have been left behind (the old version of
ZDiscussions/Confera) should be marked and or archived.

 Might be better to have a more formal declaration of the dependencies
 on versions of products relied upon at the download pages -- for some
 products this has become a tricky and madning process to make sure all
 the versions are correct for a product to run. This is natural in the
 progress of Zope and Zope products and will become even more and issue
 as Zope matures even further. This can be formalized. I do like the
 way SGI does some of this.
 

Bangs head.  Doh!

Why the heck don't products have explicit requirements the "package require n.m" 
in TCL. Heck, python ought to.

Import Fred(1.2) from Bedrock

Or something like that.

 There is a ZDiscussions that works. It is called ZUBB.
 

But it doesn't do attachments.  I really need attachments.
I'm trying to fix Attachments in ZDConfera, but the FileObject
class doesn't seem to exist any more.

Arrg.
