You don't need to change the package name (the imports), just the distribution nname (the dependencies). Jim's 'PILwoTk' package already does this: http://download.zope.org/distribution/PILwoTk-188.8.131.52.tar.gz Maybe we should just renew the request to push PILwoTk to PyPI and update our dependencies.  https://mail.zope.org/pipermail/zope-dev/2007-October/029968.html Tres. - -- =================================================================== Tres Seaver +1 540-429-0999 tsea...@palladion.com Palladion Software "Excellence by Design" http://palladion.com -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iEYEARECAAYFAkvIjC0ACgkQ+gerLs4ltQ61HgCg0ppsEK/Y3YCDHb5EWzl4lmK5 EMcAnjubj/q26EpQkYMUmdWLhVXgWPsW =OHMv -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ Repoze-dev mailing list Repozefirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.repoze.org/listinfo/repoze-dev
