What do you all think? Something we can include in time for CMF1.6.1
All of this work I'm doing is geared towards having Zope 2 developers
write code that is less Zope 2 specific and more python specific.
Nothing about bleeding edge, etc.
In the Zope 2 world I consider that bleeding edge.
And there is going to be large
community of third-party app developers writing products against the
not-yet-released Plone 2.5. But my feeling was that Plone wsan't the
only product based on CMF1.6 ... if it were then I could provide a
monkey right in plone but this is the absolute wrong approach imho.
I hope neither Plone 2.5 nor CPS 3.4 require oldstyle fti data. CMF 1.6
doesn't. Shipping Products-less python packages without profile based
fti data sounds strange to me. And if the reason is that registering
profiles doesn't work that should be fixed instead of falling back to
oldstyle fti data.
Ultimately Plone needs to get to CMF2 and that will happen with Plone
3.0, but there were simply too many changes in CMF to allow Plone to do
that within the 2.5 timeframe.
Anyhow, I'm trying to make compromises to keep as many people happy as
possible. Originally I wanted to add this to CMF 1.5.x as well :)
I'll shut up now. I don't use CMF 1.6 and I don't think your code will
break CMF 1.6.
I'm pretty sure that Plone is the only major user of CMF 1.6. That
release wouldn't even have happened except to help out Plone's release
cycle for 2.5 (which, as it turns out, would probably have been
releasable against Zope 2.9 / CMF 2.0, but that is a different story).
I'm -0 on including the product-less stuff in 1.6. I doubt that folks
who are building Plone add-ons are going to be troubled by the need to
have them installed in $INSTANCE_HOME/Products, myself.
