When exporting from portal_setup, I noticed that there is both a 'memberdata.xml' and a 'memberdata_properties.xml'. They look idential. Is there a reason ?
No idea, but last time you asked we also didn't know
Spooky, but at least it saves a lot on movie rental, can probably just watch the same movies again and again for the rest of my life …
Feel free to let us know when you figure it out
… if I remember
The generic setup tool
portal_setup has (among others) two export steps (
MemberData properties and
Member Data Tool) which produce the two xml files you are interested in.
Both export steps do basically the same but in slightly different ways: They export
The basic difference is the way they obtain
Member Data Tooluses
Both produce the same result (but in different files):
If interested in the details follow the following links:
MemberData properties - Export MemberData properties.
- configured in Products/CMFPlone/exportimport/configure.zcml
- uses handler Products.CMFPlone.exportimport.memberdata_properties.exportMemberDataProperties
- calls getToolByName(site, "portal_memberdata", None)
- writes data to file memberdata_properties.xml
