Yes. The ImportContext has only access to the last profile selected.
What still might happen with broken import handlers - especially
importVarious - is that the handlers themselves change settings
independent of any profile files.
Aha. What's the correct pattern to use in an importVarious in order not
to have that problem (bearing in mind I'll probably be documenting this
as part of a tutorial soon, I figure I'd get the story straight... :-)
Well. The easiest solution is to test if something set up by
importVarious exists already. CMFDefault looks e.g. for the 'Members'
But that solution is not very robust. If the site is modified and
'Members' renamed or removed importVarious will be run again.
The only save solution that comes to my mind is to use a small file in
the profile that controls if importVarious should be executed.
Fine. But the fact I started this thread doesn't mean I have the
resources to write a detailed proposal and implement it. So the big
question is: Who will contribute the necessary resources and do the job?
My knowledge of GS and time to learn it are both in short supply - there
are Plone deadlines coming up, among other things. :-/
I'm happy to help with testing, use cases and documentation, though.
Great! That's at least a start.
Do you have an idea of the scale and complexity of your proposal?
I'm afraid this is a big project. I guess a single person would need
several weeks to create a working prototype and several months to write
something releaseable. So we would either need sponsors that pay a
person full-time or a team of people that are willing to make
