Oops! Sorry! I did not mean to cause any confusion:
- AFAICT the 2.10 branch points already to the 3.3.0 tag.
However Philipp pointed out that the Zope 2 trunk uses the Zope 3 trunk
right now. I pointed the reasons for using the Zope 3 trunk in a former
I guess you mean 3.3 branch HEAD, not Zope 3 trunk HEAD.
My argument for using the trunk instead of a fixed revision/tag
when we develop against the trunk or implement something on the trunk
then we want to be sure that the code also works with the latest Zope 3
Otherwise something might break when we update the svn:exernals to latest
Zope 3 changes at some time before an upcoming major release. So I would
prefer that things break early than late. However as seen this approach
has other side-effects..but I am open to let the svn:externals point to
if you want that...
Well. I would prefer if there would be somebody who volunteers to test
Zope 2 every now and then with the latest Zope 3 revision.
If he or she makes sure all tests pass, the svn:externals can be updated
to that revision.
In the long run the issues have to be resolved anyway, so doing this
step by step would not be much extra work. And we could avoid to do big
last minute changes right before the release.
Pointing the svn:externals to the HEAD might encourage people to
volunteer for fixing the issues, but I'm afraid a broken HEAD also
discourages people to contribute other changes.
Just my 2 cents.
