Forum OpenACS Improvement Proposals (TIPs): Re: TIP #42 (Proposal) Adding package_id to acs_objects

Posted by Tom Jackson on

The idea of mapping objects to packages is good. Unfortunately what is proposed isn't a map. A map would allow zero, one or multiple associations of an object to various packages, which exactly corresponds to the possibilities. In the thread referenced above, Don said that only one 'package' could create an object, thus the meaning of the package_id is that it refers to the package that created the object. Is this going to be the meaning? Of course, anything created via a UI was created by a package. Is this going to be reflected in the acs_objects.package_id?
