There's nothing magic going on here. A file can contain meta directives or ordinary directives. site.zcml just includes other files, which include other files, and so on. Some of these are named "meta.zcml", which, by convention contain meta directives.

Thanks for the quick reply, Fred.
So it looks like zope.configuration.xmlconfig.file is responsible for reading the ZCML file and parsing the directives. I did find the directives in zope.app.component. I guess the outstanding question in my mind is what gets called to process meta.zcml and site.zcml.
Does Zope3 just call xmlconfig.file on the root meta.zcml (which in turn includes the other package meta files), and then xmlconfig.file on site.zcml (which also includes the others)?
Maybe I need to go back and review my ZConfig... it's been a while since I used regularly.

successfully as such), but was wondering if someone could point me toward the code in Zope 3 SVN which is responsible for reading meta.zcml for directive definitions and subsequently configure.zcml for adapter registration, etc.
The ZCML machinery is in zope.configuration; the specific directives that handle basic registrations are in zope.app.component. Unless somebody's moved them. :-)
