I actually see this as a downside to this. Having a single version
number for "zope" is a very good thing imsnho. I have nightmare
visions of the future where trying to help people debug their
problem involves first trying to figure out what versions of the
several million eggs involved they are using and then having to
point out that their problem is because eggxyz 2.1.1 isn't
compatible with eggabc 0.1a4 and that they really need to move to
eggxyz 2.1.0 or eggabc 0.1a5rev2...
(this is a problem Plone has really struggled with in the past)
* I actually went a bit further and eggified Zope 2 (it seemed the
logical conclusion). I didn't really explode Zope 2, it's one big
egg (except for a few things that are completely independent, such
as ExtensionClass, Acquisition, DateTime, zLOG). Though currently
not very comfortable to use, the Zope2 egg seems fully functional
and I see it as a (if not *the*) way to distribute Zope 2 in the
I would still like to see a meta-egg for each of Zope 2 and Zope 3
that gives "prefered" versions of all eggs involved and is still
the "standard" distribution...
Yup, we can do this.
