Relying on new external libraries with the core of Zope 3 will always
be a big step. Then again, I also think that this way large amount of
new features can be made available to Zope 3 without us having to
reinvent wheels. It makes Zope 3 a more open platform. Perhaps the
procedure for adopting externally written code should be spelled out.
There are quite a few shapes this could take (external library,
included in Zope 3 tree), and right now it seems nobody but Jim knows
what is required, or whether such inclusion is allowable at all in
the first place.
We can and often do include 3rd-party non-ZPL software. So it is
Currently, I'd prefer that ZC employees check such 3rd-party code in.
The current system isn't great, but I can't think of a better one.
The question is whether we always need to check it into our svn. pytz,
for example, is a separate package that we just had to make ZPL and
check it in, instead of simply just bundling it loosely. I expect this
sort of thing will sooner or later get us into trouble with package
maintainers that need to maintain (e.g. Debian) packages for both pytz
and Zope and thus will inevitably run into conflicts.
Right. Someday, we need to find a way to treat these separate parts
as separately installed packages.
With twisted, we have at least found a sensible approach using
This isn't sensible at all. If the twisted svn repository was down,
it would have the effect of making it impossible for us to get a
clean checkout. I don't like externals, but I can live with them
within the same repository. I don't want to see externals to external
repositories on a Zope trunk or release branch. Eventually, we'll
need to make a vendor import of twisted. We might want to more formally
follow the vendor-import model for things like pytz, docutils, lxml,
and the like.
