hi folks,

the code for the zope based python repository i've
been working on is available for download @


docs (very outdated since they refer to an openacs
implementation, but semantically are aligned).


its distributed as a single large python product.
installation requires zope2.5. installation consists
of untaring it a zope lib/python/Products directory
and restarting zope. after that go to the zope
management interfaces and add an instance of the
Python Repository.

its very much raw and has lots of missing
functionality and the ui bites, as well. but i wanted
to make it available for people to see and to garner
feedback, and see what the developer interest is like.
and also because i'm currently lacking in motivation,
which releasing will help with it, and could also use
a proverbial kick in the rear from this sig :)

there is also a relational schema leftover from my
work on doing the repository in postgres and
aolserver+pywx if in anyone is interested.

i'll setup a public site with the repository code
running and email the sig, with it soon.

i'm currently maintaining the code in a local cvs, if
there is some developer interest, i'll transfer it to
a sourceforge project.
