1 GenericSetup Product README
3 Overview
5 This product provides a mini-framework for expressing the configured
6 state of a Zope Site as a set of filesystem artifacts. These artifacts
7 consist of declarative XML files, which spell out the configuration
8 settings for each "tool" in the site , and supporting scripts / templates,
9 in their "canonical" filesystem representations.
11 Configurations Included
13 The 'setup_tool' knows how to export / import configurations and scripts
14 for the following tools:
16 - (x) removal / creation of specified tools
18 - (x) itself :)
20 - (x) the role / permission map on the "site" object (its parent)
22 - (x) properties of the site object
24 Extending The Tool
26 Third-party products extend the tool by registering handlers for
27 import / export of their unique tools.
