ignasi need some objects protected, so i want to attach a marker interface17:28
ignasand a subscriber that throws an error17:28
ignaswhich is better:17:28
ignasscraping it with directlyProvide17:29
ignasor inheriting groups as class ProtectedGroup(Group): implements(ISystemObject)17:29
* srichter notes that we have a dependency framework for those sort of things17:29
ignasdependency framework ?17:29
srichterI would use directlyProvides, but the dependency framework is better17:30
ignasany readmes ?17:30
srichterso you basically create a dependency on the group container that groups cannot be deleted17:30
srichterlook at
srichterno README though17:31
srichterit is primarily used in
ignasnot that many tests to serve as a documentation too17:33
