No, Lennart, this is wrong. A site is still very much a site (ISite
determines "site-ness", nothing else). They're still regular folders
that contain content. The only difference between sites and folders is
that sites are a palce where you can make local component registrations.
This is still the same in Zope 3.3, only the constraint *where* these
components live has changed.
So, the concept of 'site' is part of component architecture
and not specific to application server?
It is specific to the application server. The Component Architecture
only knows IComponentRegistry + IComponentLookup = IComponents.
Then, can we move up zope.app.component.interfaces.ISite to
zope.component.interfaces.ISite or any other place?
Perhaps zope.site. Jim recently suggested that perhaps we make zope.app
a namespace package in which case zope.app.component could perhaps be
distributed individually. Then zope.location would only depend on
zope.app.component, not all of zope.app.
If we can do like this, the zope.location's dependency on
zope.app can be removed.
