I have the impression some of this feedback arose because Grok actually
allows something that's quite powerful but that people may not be used
to from experience with other frameworks; the ability to install
multiple applications into the same server.
If you turn the Zope 3 root into a grok application, there are some
How do you remove the application again and reinstall it? This is what I
do quite a frequently during development.
Where is the user interface to go to the introspector?
Where is the user interface to see my server settings, perhaps can
reboot it, etc?
How this is actually going to make everyone's life better? So far I've
