Hello,

from various clippings of this list and the ZTK docs at
<http://docs.zope.org/zopetoolkit/process/tools.html> I've gathered
that there are (at least) three buildbot installations running tests
for the Zope Toolkit:

http://zope3.pov.lt/buildbot/waterfall
http://zope3.afpy.org/buildbot/waterfall
http://zope.buildbot.securactive.org/waterfall
(the ZTK docs mention only the first two. Why?)

This is great! I think that having continuous, automated test runs can
be very beneficial for spotting problems quickly (e. g. with
interoperability).

What I couldn't quite figure out, however is: what, exactly, do these
buildbots test?

I imagine one very useful scenario (don't know if there are others),
and that would be for each package X in the (still to be determined?)
list of ZTK packages, take its trunk (whenever that is updated) and
the trunks of all packages it depends on (only if those are ZTK
packages, of course, else use the according released version), and run
X's tests.

Is this covered by one of these buildbot installations? If not, is
there something I could do to help make that come true?

Thanks,
Wolfgang
