While tidying in the PAS SVN repository, I've noted a couple of things:
- The release tag names, translated from CVS tags, didn't fit the
current SVN usage pattern, which is to use only the "release number"
(without the product name prefix). I copied new tags under the
new pattern, and will delete the old ones if nobody objects
(sandboxes and checkout scripts will need to be adjusted).
- The 1.1 release has lost its momentum, while a bunch of work which
is really not "beta phase" stuff has been done on the trunk. I
would like to propose that we abandon the 1.1 release line and begin
preparation for a 1.2 release cycle. I made a branch for the 1.1
release line, in case we need to go ahead and do a release from it,
but don't see any benefit at this point.
Note that I have also begun an effort to make PAS and PluginRegistry
play nice with the GenericSetup framework for exporting / importing site
configuration. I have landed that work for the PluginRegistry: you can
now actually edit the registry settings as a single XML file via DAV,
FTP, or ExternalEditor.
I hope to get the "standard" plugins exportable / importable shortly, so
that you will be able to "snapshot" your PAS configuration (e.g., to
check it into CVS, or to migrate it to another machine). Such on-disk
profiles should make installing a pre-configured PAS much easier: just
tweak the PAS in a sandbox until it does what you want, then export it
to disk, and register the exported directory as a GenericSetup profile.
Most of what PlonePAS does currently would fall into this category,
with the exception of the GRUF-migration code (I think).
