What does "configured through a slug" mean? Looking at the page referenced above, I could not recognize how "gsxml" is made available as a Zope2 product. Looking into the egg, it looks like a standard package and not like a Zope2 product. Let me clarify my wish: I think we need an instance specific way to tell Zope 2 that it should treat something installed via "setuptools" as an additional (Zope2) product (without treating also other things laying around there as products as well); especially during startup look for an "initalize" function and call it -- beside potential Five related magic performed for Zope 2 products (such as looking for "*.zcml" files). The "zope2.product" prefix proposed above is not essential. It only tells people looking into "site-packages" that the content of this package is supposed to be used as Zope 2 products and not as standard Python packages. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
