Adds an option too reassign ownership on the sharing page

Project description


This package provides a link on the sharing page to change the ownership of a content item. The link goes to a form with an auto-complete widget for finding the new owner.


This product depends on five.grok, plone.directives.form, plone.formwidget.autocomplete and plone.principalsource. The latter three in turn depend on plone.autoform, plone.z3cform and z3c.form. On Plone 3.x, this means you need to add a few lines to your buildout to correctly configure dependencies. (You should also check that these packages have been released. At the time of writing, they have not, and as such must be run from a development checkout. However, they should be released shortly.)

Firstly, in the [zope2] section of your buildout.cfg, enable fake eggs, but skip some:

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2install
fake-zope-eggs = true
additional-fake-eggs =
skip-fake-eggs =

Then, add some version pins to your [versions] block. Create this if it does not exist already:

versions = versions

zope.i18n = 3.4.0
zope.testing = 3.4.0
zope.component = 3.4.0
zope.securitypolicy = 3.4.0 = 3.4.3
