Hi! That's a great piece of work you did, thanks!
I've been following package releases and have noticed some mistakes mainly in changelog formatting: > zope.proxy > ========= > > 3.5.0 (unreleased) > > * Added support to bootstrap on Jython. > * Use zope.container instead of zope.app.container. Well, it IS released :) Also it doesn't really "use" zope.container or zope.app.container, there's just a comment in the .c file :) > zope.dublincore > ============= > > 3.4.2 (unreleased) > 3.4.1 (2009-01-26) Again, it IS released. Also some changelog entry is missing :) Also, please, check the buildout.cfg of the zope.container, because it still includes some local developer develop paths and recipes. 2009/1/31 Martijn Faassen <faas...@startifact.com>: > Hi there, > > I've just made a lot of releases as the result of our dependency cleanup > sprint.
