I have two objects obj1 and obj2. Inside obj1 there is an attribute for
success (obj1.success) and for containing other objects (

I am using setattr() to add obj2 as an attribute to
( this is working fine.

My problem is when someone changes a variable in obj2 instance after it
is added to obj1 e.g. = False

I am trying to figure out how to locate and access obj1.success when
obj2.success has changed.

Any assistance, pointers, ideas are much appreciated.
