Just trying to get an overview - are there any plans or code (CMF 2?)
to make it possible to use Z3 content types as first-class citizens in
CMF? That is, make them available in add menus, make actions/tabs
appear on them, let them use method aliases, make them catalog aware
and so on, without necessarily inheriting from PortalContent.
Alec Mitchell's plone_schemas product lets you use such types in
Plone, though he derives from CMF's PortalContent (as I recall) and
manually constructs an FTI.
AFAICS Five content has to inherit from PortalContent and to implement a
subset of IDublinCore ('Title', 'Description' and 'Type').
At least one FTI is necessary to define a portal type on top of the
We might add a new TypeInformation derivative, which knows about the
addable Z3 content.
Or have portal_types.listTypeInfo return also non-persistent TI objects
corresponding to those registered through ZCML.
