sorry I can't reply online (I don't have the permissions):
there are two possibilities:
- register a '@@registration.html' for objects that implement Components
(this is what I did in http://svn.z3lab.org/trac/z3lab/changeset/3088).
However it must be made in the application itself and it takes a while
(at least it did for me) to find out why the registration mechanism does
not work. An exception saying: "an object cannot be registered in
itself" would help.
- fix the registration page/view zope3 and make sure that
getSiteManager() does not return the object that one is trying to register.
I can add a fix, and a test, i.e. using the parent object, OK?
if sm == self.context:
sm = component.getSiteManager(getParent(self.context))
that ought to be generic enough
