The ZPL, to be precise. > looking at the code, it doesn't look like there's too much going on > that's Plone specific. there is a dependency on the ProxyIndex product, > however. ProxyIndex looks like a reasonable candidate for the Zope core itself. The CMF could incorporate it, and conditionally import the incorporated version from Products.PluginIndexes.ProxyIndex (perhaps without monkey-patching in that case). It would need relicensing as well, if Infrae and the Plone Foundation agreed to contribute it. > assuming licensing and other issues could be worked out, is this > something that the CMF core would be interested in? Yes. The current roadmap calls for updating the CMF itself to exploit Z3-via-Five in a number of ways; such a UI would be very useful in that effort. It might even be useful *without* the catalog stuff (but I haven't looked at what the exact dependencies are).
