I am a Software Engineer who is new to a team maintaining/developing a legacy application using Zope 2.10.6 final.
The developers who created our Zope installation have all left, and there are very few notes on how to maintain the installation.
For the above mentioned reason, the inertia of this legacy project makes updating to a newer Zope version difficult. (I'm told it's been tried unsuccessfully.)
We have a new requirement to add SAML authentication.
I found dm.zope.saml2 and collective.saml2. The latter says it's an installation wrapper around the former.
/vol/plone/Python2.4/bin/python2.4 setup.py install
within the untarred package for both of the above mentioned packages. They both failed to install.
The Zope online documentation itself is very sparse and unhelpful.
Is there a resource I can utilize to help me install modules in our 2.10 environment?
(And/Or, is there a resource available which gives assistance in upgrading a hopelessly out of date Zope to something more modern?)
