Haqa's Patch Kit

http://www.zope.org/Members/haqa/PatchKit <<-- Download it here

  This product contains a number of small patches to other products
  within Zope.

  This product patches Zope when it installs. As a general rule I
  would advise against installing this on a production server until
  you have tested it properly. I have used this patch on Zope
  versions 2.2.0, 2.2.2 and 2.3.0 and it has not killed them..... yet .....

  You have been warned.

 Text File Converter

  This patch adds a "Text Convert" tab to 'DTML Method', 'DTML Document',
  and 'File' objects (It only appears for 'File' objects if the
  'content_type' starts with "text/").

  Its purpose is to allow you to convert an object containing text content
  to a DTML Document, DTML Method or
  ZStyleSheet - http://www.zope.org/Members/haqa/ZStyleSheet
  (If it is installed). Files like StyleSheets (.css) text files (.txt)
  Server Parsed HTML (.shtml) and a host of other formats get created
  as File objects when you add them through xml-rpc, WebDAV, or FTP.

 Image File Converter

  This patch adds an "Image Convert" tab to 'File' objects (It only appears
  if the 'content_type' starts with "image/").

  Its purpose is to allow you to convert an object containing image data
  to an 'Image' object so that you can take advantage of the facilities
  it provides (Auto adding 'WIDTH=""' and 'HEIGHT=""' to the IMG tag etc..).

 Web Import

  This patch adds a "Web Import" tab to 'Folder' objects.

  Its purpose is to allow you to import objects from other web sites
  without having to download to your local machine, and then upload to
  the Zope server. This, for instance, allows you to manage your Zope
  from a "Dumb" browser like a WebTV or similar (I don't know who would
  want to but...).

  Thanks go to Shane Hathaway for his Refresh Product which contained the
  patch logic I borrowed. It also more that halved my developement cycle
  time on this, and my ZStyleSheet products.
