As I recall the reason why I stopped looking at it earlier was that it only did push type synching (and as I am outside the firewall it didn't really solve my problem). I get the impression that now will allow a pull synching as well so that I can from inside the firewall synch to a site outside the firewall? > > > Import/export via zexp doesn't really solve the problem of updating a > > smattering of files over the ZODB, unless I am missing something about > > using it.

Yes they are scattered around. What I would like to do is send a file (zexp like?) that just had the various required bits in it with an implied hierarchy and have the import take care of the distribution to match the files/hierarchy. I guess nothing like that exists? _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
