Now that we've reached closure on some of the outstanding security
issues in Zope there's a lot of stuff in the Collector that needs to
be revisited...

AFAIK there weren't any public bugs related to these problems, except
for maybe issue #28 which can probably be taken out of deferred status
and placed into resolved now.

I could have sworn there was a bug report related to this but I can't
find it now.

issue #410, I can't comment on the effectiveness of this solution, I
removed XML-RPC from my tree ages ago, I am currious if anyone has a
test-case/exploit for this issue though

I believe this means issue #743 and issue #977 can be resolved now.
Actually, #977 already was rejected IIRC but its never been marked as
public which is rather irritating.

probably fixes issue #865, but because Zope-HEAD doesn't actually run
right now, due to a myriad of other bugs, I actually haven't tested it

issue #1000 can be marked resolved now

The patchset for 813's xss issues seems to have been partially
applied.  I still need to update my patch against HEAD for the xss
holes that haven't been closed.  I'll post an update to the collector
when its ready.
