A long standing bug in "KeywordIndex"...
Maybe, you give my "Managable KeywordIndex" a try
(part of "ManagableIndex").
I can't understand the lack of concern you talk about unresolved bugs in
I am a big Zope user who also files occational bug reports and
patches. However, I cannot fix bugs in Zope directly (due
to excessive demands with respect to patents, I am not willing
to sign the contributors agreement).
I am not very concerned about unresolved bugs because:
* Zope is open source. I can fix any bug which seriously hampers
my work -- not in the public Zope sources but in our sources of
To keep upgrades possible despite local modifications,
we maintain Zope in a source code control system (CVS currently).
* I am a pragmatist. When I know there is a problem and
I know how to avoid it, I just avoid it.
If I know where the problem is I report it to fix the bug
Especially, I am no longer concerned with bugs in
Zope's indexes since I have "ManagableIndex".
I believe "ManagableIndex" it is more flexible, more efficient
and has less bugs than the stock Zope indexes.
Why 2 ways?:
1.- Official one doesn't work
2.- Unofficial one who needs some duplicated dependency (OFolder
seem very similar to Ordered folder don't you thing?)
If I can't maintain my system clear and simple I change my application

It seems Zope is not a serious tool. Imagine you want to buy a car but
the seller says: in these model there are a bug on the brake system but
I you put these extra no problem
The keyword index bug is far less serious than a bug in the brake
system of a car. I think, I wrote about 5 times "a long standing bug"
in the last two to three years. There are apparently not that many people
concerned about this bug.
How can I convince my customers to use Zope with these kind of
You tell them that you can fix serious problems yourself because Zope
is open source -- if there is not already a fix around
(I told you that "Managable KeywordIndex" does not have this problem).
Anyway (I see I can't do anything to change your way of life)
Another question for the main Zope developers group
Did you plan to make some make-up to simplify Zope?
In my opinion Zope has at least one competitive advantage: the fresh
concept about objects but these kind of advantage is lost when the code
grows and grows
PD: I don't want to create controversy. I'm developing some code and the
*MAIN* feature is **MINIMUM**
