We can share our experience using deliverance for Plone.tv. It worked but had its share of challenges.

Conversation for this has been going on primarily on the Deliverance mailing list, with pieces also done on the Repoze list.

In a nutshell, here is the status:

1) Handling multiple themes (as well as no-theme) was the big unmet need at the summit. This is currently working, although you have to write middleware that makes the decision.

2) Several projects have used Deliverance and funneled their needs back into a collated list.

3) Based on this, a spec for a new Deliverance has been drafted by Ian. Paul has been working on an implementation.

Most likely the biggest question mark is whether this is targeted at Plone running as part of Repoze, or using some other kind of middleware-enabler. I believe that Repoze is the target, based on conclusions from the summit. Thus, we can presume that Plone is running in a proper WSGI context.

The second biggest question mark is where configuration (e.g. choosing themes for certain Plone sites or different parts of a Plone site) should be done. For WSGI, that smells like the Paste INI file (or zope.conf). However, some people might want a configlet in the site setup.

My writeup of the ticket says: "Thus, we can presume that Plone is running in a proper WSGI context."

While WSGI is generally endorsed for Plone (some +1, some -1, more of the former), it isn't officially endorsed. As has been made clear, the PSPS was simply information gathering, not decision making. Thus, work on this ticket will be postponed until the Plone 4 framework team is assembled and vets the tickets.

Work on Deliverance itself, and Plone-WSGI, will continue, just not under the aegis of this ticket.
