Two weeks would be longer than I would expect that process to take.Next time, I'll post the report to the tracker and mark it private. I really didn't have any intention of making your work harder than it already is - I must admit that I wouldn't have thought of the issue being that important. OTOH, I do think that the PythonScript product will need some more security audit, esp. since the restricted environment safety belt checks are no longer being maintained in the Python interpreter code and will likely go away completely for Python 3.x. It may be better to remove the PythonScript product altogether and instead use ExternalMethods.
My conclusion after almost 9 years with Zope: PythonScripts and trusted code was a good and nice feature in the "early days" of Zope. The futureis clearly trusted code in all its flavors. RestrictedPython, through-the-web editing (ZMI) and stuff like ZClasses should die - however they must remain until the end of time - for the sake of compatibility.
