Hey Roger. Sounds reasonable to me. Can we also discuss the potential of only including testing setup for dev eggs and removing testing as part of a release when the eggs are packaged to pypi or other repository for consumption.
Besides loosing the dependency, this makes for happier folks external to zope that consume our eggs. While I personally do not like the contributor agreement, I am willing to sign to help out to work with you and others to get this settled. I am busy just like anyone else, but this stuff with the dependencies has to end now. Weve been with eggs for more than a couple years, progress has been made but it has been slow. Seriously, let's see what we can do to. The browser packages are a good place to start. Testing another. Third would be seriously examining dependencies of core again once this is done. Fourth might be tackling some of the zope.xxx zope.app.xxx relationships. Some of the stale packages in the main repository and placing them at another location if they are unmaintained might also be in order. If we want to folks to use zope we need to be friendly to wsgi with or without a zodb and show both sides of the coin - that CA + choice of backend + zope security + choice of traversal method (with publisher) == interesting, productive, mature, dynamic and efficient.
