ZSyncer is a utility (from AndyM) which facilitates the synchronization
of several production sites with a central development site. It works
by automating Zope's export/import mechanism through XML-RPC.

This patch to ZSyncer 0.4.4 allows ZSyncer to synchronize CMF sites
more easily. For CMF sites, you usually want to synchronize the portal
configuration but not the portal content from development to
production. Therefore, you can not synchronize the complete portal. On
the other hand, the portal tools are not registered with Zope's meta
type registry. Therefore, ZSyncer's standard configuration to
control syncable meta types fails for CMF portal tools which contain
most of the configuration. The tiny patch adds an additional textarea
to the configuration form which allows to add the meta types of
unregistered object classes in free form (as lines, to be precise).
