plone template should have an option to generate skins folder and related xml
- Issue state: Unconfirmed -> Rejected
I understand this is frustrating, but I think it's by design. The
'plone' template is a bare-bones plone product. If you are doing
stuff with the skins folder, you should probably use the
'plone3_theme' template or the 'archetype' template.
Even when I'm not doing content type things, I always use the
'archetype' template (the 'plone3_theme' template is overkill if
you're not doing theme stuff). You get all those folders you end
up needing anyway :)
I think this speaks to the sort of confusing way that the
templates are arranged and named. IIRC, all of the plone-related
templates ('archetype', 'plone_pas', etc) derive from the 'plone'
template, and I'd bet that it's just there mostly as a base for
the others (but don't quote me on that).
