FYI, there's a similar zip file now containing the same kind of thing for a

If this is good enough for people trying to work from CVS on Windows, let me
know and I'll update them from time to time, and maybe move them to a saner
location. If it's not good enough, sorry, but I don't anticipate having
enough time to do more than this (which is just a trivial zip+upload step
beyond the builds I have to do anyway).

Thanks Tim.

Hi Guys,

Saw my name mentioned earlier but not sure whether Tim has solved the problem...

I'd be happy to set up a nightly (or weekly, let me know which would be better) scheduled task (see, it's Widnows, there is no Cron, although Schedules Tasks do have a much nicer UI ;-) ) that checked out he latest HEAD of Zope 3, compiled it and PUT it up to my member area

I think that would be super. Nightly would be best.

suspect the slowest part of this process will actually be uploading it to - what's the plan to fix speed suckage? how about workflow suckage?)

Do you have to go through all of that? Couldn't you put it up as a zip file, using ZMI, rather than CMF API's?

Would it be helpful to get the nightly Windows tests running again? I stopped as a corollory of setting up my own company, but also because of lack of perceived support from people who could fix Windows problems

I think making the binaries available will widen the pool of people who could fix windows problems.

stuff on Windows... has any of that changed?

Don't confuse "caring" with "time" and "priorities". I care about having Zope 3 run on Windows, and Mac OS X, and other platforms. I don't have time to do that though. I think it would be appropriate for others to help by working on windows and Mac OS X (etc.) issues.
