Hey folks. Sorry bout the cross-post, but it is cross-project.
We at the Connexions Project at Rice University (cnx.rice.edu) have been
working on integrating groups (specifically GRUF) into CMF (and
I have checked in the latest work to this end for inclusion into Plone
1.1a. It's an alpha release, and make no mistake that this is an alpha
* two tool interfaces for using groups in CMF (along the lines of
portal_members and portal_memberdata)
* partial implementations of these tools using GRUF
* Plone management screens for users and groups
What you can do:
* view users and groups
* manage their properties and permissions
* delete them
What you can't do (but should by 1.1 final):
* add groups TTP
* create group workspaces
* search for groups
The components in GRUF (the tools and implementations) are checked in to
the GRUF CVS under the 'groups-tool-branch'. I leave it up to whoever
makes such decisions to merge to head. The components in Plone (mostly
skins) are checked into HEAD.
To use this new facility, you must install GRUF with these changes
(hopefully we'll make HEAD soon) and manually install the two new tools.
This will later be part of the install process.
I believe the implemented bits to work, but please let me know if
something goes wrong. Good patches gleefully accepted.
