Hi there! While looking at the zope.app.principalannotation package, I discovered that both zope.annotation and zope.app.principalannotation register their IAnnotations adapters twice: fisrt, as a simple adapter and second, as a multi adapter for some additional context object.
The zope.annotation doesn't use that additional context at all - it just allows to get annnotations by multi-adapter lookup. The zope.app.principalannotation uses the additional context object as context argument for getSiteManager, which I believe is not needed and/or used in most cases, because application components, like zope.site provide their hooks to get the right site manager. There's no documentation or any tests for that behaviour neither in zope.app.principalannotation, nor in zope.annotation, so I made an assumption that these registrations are there just to support some very old annotation pattern, that was deprecated ages ago. If it's like that, I'd like to remove that registration for zope.principalannotation that is about to born as well as for zope.annotation. Can someone clarify this point? -- WBR, Dan Korostelev _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
