I have a script that builds zope. And part of that script is going
to get the tarballs. When they change the name I have to go and change
the URL (normally I just set the version number).

Here's an example:


[snipped lots of other installs]

package = 'ZEO'
if version.has_key(package):
        ver = version[package]
        install(package=package, dir='src', 
url='http://www.zope.org/Products/ZEO/ZEO-%s.tgz' % (ver), checkfile='src/ZEO-%s' % 

install is a function that uses the parameters in it to decide
what to do.

You'll see that when I switched to ZEO 2.0 I had to change the

And I shouldn't have to go look up the URL every time to make sure it's
the same... That's the whole point of my script.
