This isn't exciting by any means unless you're one of the people who package Zope up for distribution, or maybe you're one of the people who manage lots of little Zopes on one system; but I'd like to revive the "grand unified Zope installation and control" proposal that has been floated by many people (including me) in one form or another for some time. Wikiwise, this would wrap up http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Proposals/ZopeStartupProvisions and http://dev.zope.org/Wikis/DevSite/Proposals/InstallationAndConfiguration, at least. To summarize, this would involve - an expanded build program with an installation scheme that would allow multiple versions of Zope to be present on the same system - making that installation 'secure by default' - a registry of Zope installations and one of instances and their configuration settings - a 'zopectl' program or similar that would be able to start and stop instances - a 'zopeinstance' program or similar that would become the _recommended_ way of setting up Zope, by creating an INSTANCE_HOME It would be nice if - the same framework could apply to Zope 3, maybe taking care of that piece ahead of time I'm more than willing to head this up, though I question how long we have before 2.6 to do so. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
