emergency user password and generally reporting information about the
The "(Assuming you get it right that is)" is also spot on - people will do
strange things, and we need a simple interface that we can walk them through
on the phone, and also an interface that they're unlikely to cause damage
with (as opposed to editing z2.py or the *gak* registry!)
This interface is _specifically_ targetted at a "new breed" of zope user.
Someone who was brought up on a diet of IIS or some other plug-n-play web
server. Someone who just wants it to work, no registry editing, no config
file editing. That's who this stuff is targetted at.
