Oh, this is where I always get scared because I always get lost. :) The pkg_resources documentation is here: http://packages.python.org/distribute/pkg_resources.html You can probably create a Distribution object somehow (handwave) from a path (whether that's the path of the package or the path the package is in, not sure). Then maybe 'get_metadata('long_description') on the distribution object, but maybe not as one seems to have to supply metadata when constructing a distribution.. But again, I always get lost here, perhaps you need an Environment or a WorkingSet first, etc. Regards, Martijn _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
