Conflict with Versioning
Squishdot Posted by John Goerzen on Wednesday October 27, 03:48PM, 1999

Zope has a wonderful feature called Versions that allow you to work on a site and test changes without putting those changes into production. However, whenever I turn on a version to make some site changes, squishdot spews errors whenever somebody does something that needs a "write", such as submitting an article or comment. How can this conflict be fixed?

    The short answer... you can't. Modifying an object in a version makes it unwritable in the "main branch" of the site. This is a limitation of the ZODB versioning model at present.

    It is theoretically possible to write a versioning storage that provides a better conflict resolution model, and Ty Sarna and I are working on that possibility. Some of the folks at DC are also looking into alternative approaches to fix the same problem.
