Adapters for Plone sites

Project description

Provides a brown bag of adapters for Plone sites

The purpose of this package is not to provide new functionality but to factor out existing functionality from an existing monolitic Zope product. Thus, it is more likely to lose functionality during further development (as parts of it will be forked out into their own packages, or some functionality may even become obsolete because there are better alternatives in standard Plone components).
