I call the external method like this from DTML...

set_owner(restrictedTraverse(path_to_user)),

where path to user is a physical path, but I'm using the ZUserFolder, so I
can use the restrictedTraverse to get to users.  UserFolder has a different
API.  You could do this if your acl_users is a standard UserFolder...

set_owner(acl_users.getUser(user_name))

in DTML or make your external method this...

def set_owner(self, user_name):
  self.changeOwnership(self.acl_users.getUser(user_name))

OK, so that should keep you busy for a while.  Anyway, the point is that the
parameter to changeOwnership is a User _object_.  Good luck.

I can get it to work :-/

I get an attributeerror on aq_inner in lib/python/AccessControl/Owned.py,
line 302, in ownerInfo

Seems as if the user i provide isn't of the right type?

How do you use your method? How is it being called?
