      When a user creates a Zope object, they *own* that object.  An
      object that has no owner is referred to as *unowned.*
      Ownership information is stored in the object itself.  This
      is similar to how UNIX keeps track of the owner of a file.

         a user ... they own??

         How can an object be created without an owner?
         Which objects are not owned by their creator?

         I accidently took ownership of the root object, so now every visitor is required to give a user name and
         password to view any underlying objects.
         Is there a way to set back the ownership to unowned?
