Well, mixing versions and using versions of packages that differ several years in release dat will always be possible, but "on your own risk" so to speak. We do seem to have reached the conclusion now that 2.4 support should continue and be handled by 2.4 buildbots, which is good. But as a principle we can't expect zope.anything from 2009 to work with zope.everything from 2006, even if both run under Python 2.4 (Which is why we have KGS's). Keeping that sort of compatibility is going to be more work than keeping 2.4 compatibility, and is practically untestable in the general case (but well testable in the specific case, of course). -- Lennart Regebro: Python, Zope, Plone, Grok http://regebro.wordpress.com/ +33 661 58 14 64 _______________________________________________ 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 )
