If you use ZTK 1.1, then you should have a version of zope.deprecation which still has the README.txt in the expected location. The only breakage comes when you pick up a newer zope.deprecation. > The README.txt in project root is not included in the egg.

I think the whole idea that zope.app.apidoc is the "master documentation" for all those separately-maintained packages is inherently broken. We should be concentrating on writing *real* documentation (via Sphinx), rather than cobbling together pseudo-documentation via doctests and a fragile piece of undermaintained code. > Instead, I restored the location of README.txt, a move that does not > have any benefit, so that an app that includes zope.app.apidoc would > start, and I do not need to remove any content. Chose lesser evil to > fix breakage. The benefit is to have the top-level README.txt exposed in an "expected" place (not buried in the software); the real documentation should be in a 'docs' subdirectory, buildable with Sphinx.
