Yes, Tres suggested that on another list. But doing this also
prevents the test runner from running any tests :-)
It bails out with errors like:
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 1116, in remove_stale_bytecode
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:
I think for my use case, your workaround of putting mxODBCZopeDA
under SoftwareHome is probably the best.
I'm currently using the test -k flag to prevent bytecode deletion,
but it's only a matter of time before that causes me pain of the
sort Chris described.
I'll put the mx libs in my python site-packages too (since the
testrunner also deletes bytecode in $INSTANCE_HOME/lib/python).
Shouldn't be a problem for licensing since our buildout system creates a
dedicated "private" python installation; we're not currently sharing
python or SOFTWARE_HOME across multiple instances, and I doubt we'll
start doing that because it'd take some hacking on the build scripts so
it's much cheaper to just keep wasting disk space.
Thanks for the input everybody,
