Which isn't actually a good idea I suppose. Relying on a fragile infrastructure to find out it doesn't work when you need it. Well... > What exactly do you do to "run tests"?

I just have a really hard time trying to poke into that stuff and make it work. It just feels like poking a hairy cat. > Or in the case of WinBuilders, a few dozen buttons, shell scripts, > makefiles, and tricks building on 1.6 gigabytes of Cygwin code <wink>. Well. It's not that bad if it would work. - bumping a version number - run "WinBuilders/buildout zope" - do "build/bin/test.py" - Upload the .exe file > I suspect it's worse than just that.

I'm happy with them.
