A problem is that every platform has its own unique bag of miserable quirks.
Case in point: before we released ZODB 3.3a3 last Friday (which is also the
ZODB in the current Zope2 and Zope3 CVS HEADs), I tried to run the ZODB/ZEO
test suite under Cygwin on WinXP Pro. "Disaster" is a fair assessment --
every time the test framework tried to spawn a ZEO process, it died
instantly, with a Cygwin-specific message I didn't understand. So you need
to be a real platform fan to get a "minority" platform to work; while I like
Cygwin well enough, I rarely use it, and don't have time or interest to
pursue it as a hobby.
Maybe this is (still) relevant to building Zope under Cygwin, maybe not:
What exactly is needed? I routinely compile Zope2 and Zope3 HEAD on
Windows, using MSVC 6. I can't make time to set up a fancy snapshot
procedure, but if all people want is (e.g.) a zip file containing the .pyd
files, uploading those once a week wouldn't be a significant time sink.
