Is 46 lines too much? That's how much it takes to have python instancehome default-publisher-encoding # hm, what's this? first time I see one <eventlog> <logger access> <http-server> <zodb_db main> <zodb_db temporary> with a couple of %defines and comments. Or we could put a sample zope.conf somewhere on the web (heck, in svn is fine, using those nice *checkout* urls we've already used for downloading buildout's bootstrap.py or the Zope 2.12.2 versions.cfg). It'd be even better if there was a command I could run to generate an up-to-date default zope.conf, like mkzopeinstance does. Is there one? Maybe there's a place for "bin/zopectl init" that would mkdir etc var log and write a default etc/zope.conf? (Thanks to whoever came up with "bin/zopectl adduser", BTW, much appreciated!) Now the "using buildout" section of INSTALL.rst leaves the user to write one completely from scratch without any tool support or even a link to documentation, and I'd like to fix this in case I have to set up a Zope 2.x instance ever again ;-) Cheers!
