Bug#123525: O: zope-guf -- Roll-your-own user folder for Zope

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of zope-guf, Mike Goldman <whig@debian.org>,
is apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package
now.  If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- retitle
this bug from 'O:' to 'ITA:', fix the outstanding bugs and upload a
new version with your name in the Maintainer: field and a

   * New maintainer (Closes: #thisbug)

in the changelog so this bug is closed.

Description: Roll-your-own user folder for Zope
 The GenericUserFolder is a roll-your-own user folder. It provides
 hooks for you to list users, authenticate a user, list a user's roles
 etc. It supports cookie based authentication to allow you to create a
 nifty login screen to your site. It provides an alternative when
 existing Zope user authentication methods need to be mixed and
 matched, or aren't configurable enough, or don't quite do what you
 want. If you need to write your own authentication mechanism or query
 inhouse datasources, it will be much easier writing code to plug into
 GUF rather than writing a acl_users folder implementation and
 associated baggage from scratch.
