Hi all,

I don't recall any information being provided to the CMF developers about CMF fixes in the most recent Plone Hotfix:

For example, there's a monkey patch to make sure getToolByName only returns valid tool objects and nothing else, see the attached file.

I'm not sure if there's an oversight of not forwarding this information to us or if it was determined this fix is not relevant for the CMF. Would any list member who also works on Plone have an insight?



I got this back from David Glick after asking

Thanks. We haven't had a chance to start applying the patches in the hotfix back to where they really belong, but we'll do so soon. Note that for the time being it should be possible to apply the Plone hotfix to pure CMF sites as well to patch this issue.

Still no wiser as to why we weren't informed.
