I was chatting on irc with some people on #zope and some where interested in it because it does make managing many zope instances easy. You have config files for your instances and you can stop and start all instances from a single script. You can also create new instances, remove them, reset the access password etc. It makes it much easier to manage overall then a regular zope install however it still needs a little more work for some of its rough spots.
I would like to see something like this as part of zope since currently zope is a bit of a pain to manage many instances on one machine and so lots of things have been developed to deal with that and having a system that is just part of zope to address that would help a lot from a maintenance standpoint. This one has the advantage of being written in python, having a simple config file format and it already works however any such system would be an improvement and I am sure debian would switch if zope gained a built in way to do this. http://packages.debian.org/unstable/admin/zopectl.html _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
