| I am trying to use exUserFolder to auth against a passwd style file.
| Are there any docs for this?

Well there are, they are conveniently not in exUserFolder though :-)

The file based authentication method, is a direct port of etcUserFolder,
and comes with all of its quirks. It is mainly there for people migrating
from etcUserFolder.

Basically you need to create a directory called exusers in the top level
of your Zope install (on your filesystem). Inside this you can have
any number of files (for different user folders).

| Is there some general "How to install and use products" kind of docs?
| Perhaps it is out there (on www.zope.org?) and I am just missing it.
| I have looked at several Products and they all were skimpy on details
| so I figure there must just be something generic that I should know.

Yes we need docs for exuserfolder, especially for some of the more
esoteric auth sources.
