It will always PAS-ify the nearest (*usually* root) acl_users if and only if it's a standard user folder.

My opinion is that PAS is mature enough to serve as a replacement of a standard user folder, which is what we are using it as. This is getting too PlonePAS specific, better ask those questions in plone-dev. -- Sidnei da Silva Enfold Systems, LLC. http://enfoldsystems.com _______________________________________________ Zope-PAS mailing list Zope-PAS@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-pas
