Hi Andreas, In this case, copying the Data.fs file isn't a feasible solution because there is plenty of user content that would get over-written. The test instance of course doesn't contain this data. I am pretty new to Zope, so it's possible that I don't fully understand the development process when using this tool, but I would find it surprising if there isn't a way to administer updates without affecting content or manually replicating configuration settings. Is this an inherent weakness of Zope?
