I think the default Zope install should not have dependencies other than that Python is required and the user has some shell system (bash/sh/MS batchfiles).
... and aap apparently ;)
I'm thinking that ZC needs a more capable make replacement. That isn't quite the topic of this thread, but Aap (eg.) would be cool already if it was just used by ZC to manage their checkout/builds, and was available as option for outsiders to use. The releases needn't have a new dependency.
It's based on the winning design for software construction tools (ie. "make" replacement) in the Software Carpentry contest
Yes, like Roundup :)
It's certainly been around for longer than aap :)
I'd bet that Bram has been brooding on Aap for a long time, and he certainly has masses of experience managing complex build environments, with Vim compiling on about a million architectures with or without myriads of compilation options, language bindings, GUI toolkits, etc.
, and is more stable than 0.14 alpha
I note with a grin that up until this month aap was at release 0.150 :)
That's the hundred and fiftieth release, ne :)
