Updating a (disk based) file and monkey patching don't seem to go together in my mind. I'm really unclear what you are proposing here. > 2) If the monkey patch is installed, then the installed file is > written in $(INSTANCE_HOME)/tmp.

Didn't someone else make a proposal (with code) to handle this? Was it PatchKit? But yes, some "standard" would be helpful, possibly with supporting utilities, to allow multiple monkeypatches coexist, I think. On the other hand, in Zope3 you just change the zcml files...although I think there was a discusion of an analogous issue there (coexistence of multiple "modifications" to the same area) and I'm not sure a conclusion was reached (but I can't remember for sure). --RDM _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
