After reading Chris' and Jeff Shell's blogs, I am very unexcited about
zc.buildout.  I am hoping 'virtualenv' is just a polishing of
virtual-python, which is very easy, and works well to create complete
"virtual" Python envs (including for Plone/Zope):

  wget  http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/virtual-python.py
  $PY  ./virtual-python.py  --prefix=$ZEOCLUSTER_HOME
  # ... for example

thank you,

PyCon 2008 is being held in Chicago this year. The general conference is
March 14-16 with the proceeding day, March 13th, being the traditional
"tutorial day".  We have had a lot of input on topics to cover and now
we are looking for qualified instructors to sign up to present the
sessions.  Tutorials are 3 hours long (with break) and instructors are
paid for their effort ($1000.00 + conference registration).

PyCon is planned and run by volunteers just like you.  Why not get involved?

Pop on over to us.pycon.org <http://us.pycon.org/2008/about> for
conference details or email us at pycon-tutorials@...
<mailto:pycon-tutorials@...> and let us know what you would like
to present as a tutorial.

Thanks,

Get Up To Speed

I did a major overhaul of this page:

http://trizpug.org/up-to-speed/

Comments and suggestions welcome. I'm not a particularly good proof-reader.

Thanks, Mark and Mike, for posting Plone Jams. I look forward to Wednesday.

Important Hotfix for Plone

If you have a plone site, better look at this. They've made it a warning
on the main page of plone and SteveM is urging everyone to hotfix
immediately.

CVE-2007-5741: unsafe data interpreted as pickles
by Wichert Akkerman — last modified November 6, 2007 - 09:40 

This hotfix corrects a vulnerability in the statusmessages and
linkintegrity modules, where unsafe network data was interpreted as
python pickles. This allows an attacker to run arbitrary python code
within the Zope/Plone process.

Repoze meeting for TriZPUG

All,

Chris McDonough is speaking about Repoze tonight at ZPUGDC and is asking 
us for a date to come talk to us.

He is checking to see if he is available Nov 27, our next regular 
meeting. He may somewhere else that day.

If he is not available then, he's asking if we have a December date.

Normally, we have a get together and not a meeting in December and have 
it earlier in the month.

Also, we now have these Plone Jam things on the first Wednesday and 
third Thursday.

*If* we made our December first Wednesday (Dec 5) Plone Jam our holiday 
get together *and* had Chris come speak for it,

a) how would you feel about that?

b) how would Train of Thought (Mark) feel about hosting it or not?

Keep in mind, I'd want to invite whoever wants to come from CharPy. Or I 
might try to coordinate for Chris to go to Charlotte on an adjoining 
date for a CharPy meeting. Except I think CharPy also normally meets on 
First and third Wednesdays. Confusing. So maybe even we have a holiday 
get together on first Thursday? Just say what you think.

Chris also said we could wait until January if we want.

A & B: +1.  No problem, I think TOT can host on 5 December.  Of course, we
have had no meetings yet, so maybe the Jammers will protest?  Ha!

I'd really like to hear the Repoze talk and could do it on 11/27 or  
12/5 but nothing after 12/8.

Thanks Chris and Mark.

Plone Jam #1: wanted more Jammers, but we did fine


Hi all,

For Plone Jam #1, Chris Calloway and Rob Lineberger showed up, at TOT
Marketing in Morrisville.  Jim Allman and I hosted.

() Rob demo'd some workflow-designing and models, for his new
   DVDVerdict.com and new Plone-UML-modeling Plone sites.  He's a Busy Man(TM).

   Rob wants everyone involved who's interested, on the new Plone-
   UML-modeling site.  Sorry, I forget what the new domain-name is :(

() Chris was active on the #trizpug IRC chat.

() I helped Rob get his notebook-wireless working, for Ubu Linux - he's
   now quite happy

() I demo'd some more Python debugging stuff, in Wing3.0

() Jim showed us some slick CSS &gfx styling tricks, while working
   directly on Rob's Plone-UML-modeling site.

() Rob and I talked about "refactoring" / redesigning his UML & Plone
   code (& subsetting), for his UNC Medical LIMS plone site.

   The idea would be to release this "example" UML & Plone code, for
   the upcoming Plone-UML-modeling site.  I am sure we would be happy
   to have more participants in this nascent project.

   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laboratory_Information_Management_System

If you weren't there, you missed it - too bad!  Plone Jam #2 is next
week!

thank you,

#plone chat.

If you go to a Plone Jam, don't immediately jump on #plone all excited 
about it. "Hey, we're having a Plone Jam!" Because you'll get sucked 
into a bunch of problems helping organize a new ZPUG in Berkeley and 
miss most of the Plone Jam going on in your own meatspace.

Plus I had to leave early.

So Jim and Rob and Mark were all improvising pretty harmoniously and I 
was over in the corner tuning my instrument.
