I think it's worth asking whether this is an important requirement.
If it is, then we should make it work. Question is, is it worth
delaying the release? I don't know.
I think it's an important requirement; many of us have done this dance
for years. The reason I'd suspect this got done by Chris M was to ease
our pains we'd had to work around over time and make it easier for
people coming into the Zope Community - or their support staff (i.e.
But those people use releases, not checkouts AFAIK.
If we did stay with the current situation, we'd need to cleanup the
documentation so that a developer can easily reminder herself
what she can do and how to do it.
If it's indeed *easy* and clear, that should be ok. It just needs to
work sensibly :) So many of us are used to the ./configure; make; make
I'll note that, as a developer, I have never done this and probably
never would want to do this.
The only use case for this is a deployer of Zope that wants to install an
unreleased revision of Zope. If this use case is driving this, a better
solution might be to build automatic snapshot releases.
