I ended up declaring that InternalPrincipal implements the marker interface IAttributeAnnotatable, and that allowed me to annotate to the InternalPrincipal instances. It works because InternalPrincipal instances reside in the ZODB, but I wonder if it's a good idea. If it's not, then I'd love to see a recipe on how to use the PrincipalAnnotation machinery with InternalPrincipal instances. > 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. I'm still wondering about this part... Cheers, Luciano _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
