Replace a Plone member by another one (ownership, creators, sharings and mutable groups).

Project Description
================
iw.memberreplace
================

By Ingeniweb_

A missing feature from the members control panel. A contributor of your Plone
site is replaced by someone else. This happens sometimes. If your site has
thousands of items, dozens of contributors and groups, this utility will save
your managers hours of digging in your site and changing settings on hundreds of
content items.

Features and options:

* Replace member in ownership
* Replace member in DC Creators
* Replace member in sharings
* Replace member in groups
* Remove former member
* Dry run
* Logging all this

Requirements
============

Plone 3.x

Installation
============

We assume that you created your Zope instance with **paster create -t
plone3_buildout <your-instance>** or something similar. And of course you're
supposed to know how to set up a Plone site using zc.buildout.

With zc.buildout
----------------

Recommended practice for integration or production instances.

Open `buildout.cfg` with your favorite text editor and change it like indicated
below::

[instance]
...
eggs =
...
iw.memberreplace
...
zcml =
...
iw.memberreplace

Run your buildout, you're done.

From Subversion repository
--------------------------

Recommended practice for developers.

Install as indicated in `With zc.buildout`_ above.

Checkout your preferred trunk/branch of `iw.memberreplace` in $BUILDOUT/src (You
should have $BUILDOUT/src/iw.memberreplace/... after this). See the `Project
home pages`_ section for the repository URL.

Then::

$ cd $BUILDOUT/src/iw.memberreplace
$ python setup.py develop

Open `buildout.cfg` with your favorite text editor and change it like indicated
below::

[buildout]
...
develop =
src/iw.memberreplace

Run your buildout, you're done. Your Subversion working copy of
`iw.memberreplace` should take over the egg.

Upgrades
========

Visit in ZMI the `portal_setup` object of your site, click `Upgrades` and select
`iw.memberreplace:default`. All is obvious from there.
