This package provides a for Lineage child sites. It adds a local component with a layered-/proxy-registry.


If a value was not found in the lineage child-site registry, it is loaded from the parents registry.

On value set it checks if value does not exist in child-registry and if value is different from the parent value. Then a new record based on the parent record is created and added to the child-registry with new value set. If it already exists in child-registry value is set.

On value delete it deletes only existing values in the child-registry and does not touch the parent registry.


Theres no editing UI for now.


Just depend in your buildout on the egg lineage.registry. ZCML is loaded automagically with z3c.autoinclude.

Install it as an addon in Plone control-panel or portal_setup.

This package is written for Plone 4.1 or later.
