I tried to go after this today (reversing the dependency setup between zope.formlib and zope.app.form). There are hundreds of changes that need to be made to move interfaces to zope.formlib. I made them (more or less mechanically) but then couldn't get the tests to pass. Since I don't actually use zope.formlib, I don't think it's appropriate that I commit anything. OTOH, I'm pretty convinced that this action would be a win for packages that depend on formlib. I found these: ./zope.app.component-3.7.0-py2.5.egg/EGG-INFO/requires.txt:zope.formlib ./zope.app.exception-3.5.0-py2.5.egg/EGG-INFO/requires.txt:zope.formlib ./zope.app.zcmlfiles-3.5.3-py2.5.egg/EGG-INFO/requires.txt:zope.formlib Are we done yet? ;-) - C _______________________________________________ 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 )
