Sorry for being late, I hadn't yet subscribed to this list.

I'd love to do this, however it seems to be very difficult until 
a standard Zope package file format exists. See my posts on this 
subject on [EMAIL PROTECTED]

However I think a "shell" command could help, e.g. in ZShell 
dialog box you'd type something like:

shell apt-get update
shell apt-get upgrade

This would do it, but you'll need to have an apt-get wrapper which would
have to be setuid root, so this would be very dangerous.

the best solution is of course to standardize on one file format,
and tweak Distutils to do what we want, then adding "zope-apt-get" to ZShell
(or why not directly to Zope) will be trivial.
