Someone with setup.py courage needs to step up to the plate then. The Windows build process is way hard enough to follow already without adding reams of arbitrary new makefile cruft to paper over setup.py bugs. Perhaps someone on Linux could volunteer to run Zope trunk tests from the result of doing "setup.py install ...", and add missing files to setup.py until that works. The WinBuilders tests can't possibly work either so long as setup.py neglects to install necessary files.
Done. (besides the Zope 3 failures)
I did that more than once, but why can't people clean up after themselves? AFAICS two things could help them:
- giving feedback by running nightly test on a not-in-place installation
- reducing the need for setup.py updates by switching to the Zope 3 setup code
Just my 2 cents.
