Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Howto: Expand and Use acs-subsite Based Member Roles - uninstalling

You are very welcome. And thanks for adding your notes on cleanup.

In general, once a package ties itself into oacs by adding system objects, types, and permissions, removing the package is like extracting teeth. It requires brute-force.

I hope someone corrects me on the previous statement...

Brute force? No no, it requires a fileting knife, and much persistance and testing. It's not that bad if you write your drop scripts as you develop the package - that's when you may actually want to drop and recreate it over and over again, wiping out all data every time you drop it. If you leave the drop scripts till later, well, I dunno. Get to work with the filet knife, I guess. (I've never had rel types I needed to drop though.)
