This is a small product to allow Plone to work with Tramline from Infrae. It monkey-patches some of the Archetypes FileField methods, but should be safe to install even if you are not using Tramline.
Tramline from Infrae is an upload and download accelerator that plugs into Apache. Its aim is to make downloading and uploading large media to an application server easy and fast, without overloading the application server with large amounts of binary data.
This product contains a few patches to Plone to make tramline work with Plone. You will still need to install and setup Apache, mod_python and Tramline as per their install instructions. Once installed File objects uploaded to Plone (via apache proxying) will be handled by Tramline.
Beware this is alpha code. It works for me, but it has not had very extensive testing yet. I'm putting it out there as soon as possible to get feedback on it as soon as possible and as a place for other intergration ideas for Tramline to be hung.
No stable release available yet.
