Why is that chicken & egg?
In theory, shouldn't you be able to put PloneCollectorNG 1.2.8 in your
new Plone 2.1 products directory, then when you try to migrate to Plone
2.1 it will have PloneCollectorNG 1.2.8?
If you're trying to migrate to Plone 2.1, with PloneCollectorNG 1.2.7 in
the Products dir, then I wouldn't expect that to work..
Or maybe I misunderstood you here..........
