Quite a few bits and pieces of Zope 3 also depend on there being a __parent__, including the default security policy. You may therefore either need to establish such a __parent__ relationship, or write a new security policy. Chris, when you finish doing this please document it so it'll be an "of course" for the rest of us too. :) Regards, Martijn _______________________________________________ Zope3-dev mailing list Zope3firstname.lastname@example.org Unsub: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/options/zope3-dev/archive%40mail-archive.com
