Hello, John and Zope 3 gurus, I wonder if the question reproduced below was answered somewhere. I'm struggling with the same issue: I am using a PrincipalFolder to store InternalPrincipal instances, but I want to annotate them but can't figure out how.
Also, I wonder why the IInternalPrincipal does not extend IPrincipal. I may be wrong, but I get the feeling that the name "principal" has been abused to describe two different things in the API: usually a principal is non-persistent object which represents an user during a request, but in the case of the PrincipalFolder, the InternalPrincipal are not those same principals, but rather persistent objects which represent an account that allows a principal of the first kind to log in. Cheers and a happy 2008 to all! -- Luciano On Aug 11, 2007 11:56 PM, John Maddison <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Hi all, > > I'm using a PrincipalFolder to store users who have signed up to a > site, and during signup I'd like to ask them for some more information > (email address, etc) and store it in a principal annotation. > However, PrincipalFolders use IInternalPrincipals, which do not appear > to be easily converted to annotatable IPrincipals until after a user > has logged in, so I'm at a bit of a loss as to how I can store this > metadata at signup.
