Excuse me, but I really believe trying to solve this situation within
Zope is getting at it from the wrong side.
It is so much easier to wrap the call to wget in a shell, python, perl,
whatever script. Then you can use a simple lockfile to see if another
wget is still running in a copy of the script. It will take you 10
minutes and you will have solved the problem (at least for the use case
of wget being run from the same machine).
As for making a lock inside Zope, I have done this with setting a
treeroot.manage_changeProperties( currently_parsing = True )
treeroot.manage_addProperty('currently_parsing', True, 'boolean')
For me it never worked inside the SESSION object (for my use case it
does not matter that the session will do the locking only per user).
After I'm done, I do:
treeroot.manage_changeProperties( currently_parsing = False )
I don't know if this is the proper or cleanest way to do it, but
