Hi. I have seen in your Trac that you made a development on PloneGazette for Plone 4. I want to ask if it will be possible to checkout this version, because I have the same need on my Plone website.

Would be great to get a short feedback.

Hi! The version we have is based on an old fork of PloneGazette (started at Plone 2.5), with some EEA specific enhancements. You can look at the HISTORY.txt for changes (the fork was based on PG 3.0 - 2008-07-11, which we renamed to 2.5, to denote the Plone version, then we changed to version 4, when we upgraded the main website to Plone 4.0)[…]/HISTORY.txt

You can use the following URL to make a checkout:[…]/

Thank you very much for the fast reply.

The checkout URL ist not working for me.

svn co[…]/ Products.PloneGazette
svn: PROPFIND Anfrage fehlgeschlagen auf '/projects/Zope/browser/trunk/Products.PloneGazette/trunk'
svn: PROPFIND von '/projects/Zope/browser/trunk/Products.PloneGazette/trunk': 200 OK (

Do I need login data?

Hi cschneider! There is no login neccesary, the correct command and URL is: svn co[…]/trunk Products.PloneGazette

Thank you for the correct URL. It worked for me when I removed Google dependencies form import_steps.xml file.

I had a conflict with the product redturtle.custommenu.factories, the view file on NewsletterTheme view is not working. Do you have any idea or know about such problems in conflict with other products?

TypeError: ('Could not adapt', <NewsletterTheme at /CMS/zweiter-ordner/newsletter>, <InterfaceClass zope.annotation.interfaces.IAnnotations>)
> /opt/zope/Plone4/buildout-cache/eggs/redturtle.custommenu.factories-0.2.0b-py2.6.egg/redturtle/custommenu/factories/browser/
-> annotations = IAnnotations(context)

Other question: Why didn't you push your extension to Plone 4 back to the community? I know, alot of people, like me, would be interested in it?

You need to add in a zcml file the following snippet:

<class class="Products.PloneGazette.NewsletterTheme.NewsletterTheme">
<implements interface="zope.annotation.interfaces.IAnnotations" />

The reason for this is that the PloneGazette we use has not been yet migrated to Archetypes so it's really old code. The trunk community code is using Archetypes already, for some time.
