This is the result of building and testing the tarball/multiple
tarballs. I started this because zope3 was breaking my schooltool
nightly tarball build too often.

Practically all of my commits over the last months have been fixing
tarball setup breakage caught by this test. I wanted others to help as
well;)

Yes, building and testing tarballs.

Another interesting idea is testing old bodies of code against newer
Zope 3 versions. For backwards compatibility. For example, schoolbell,
released with Zope 3.1 fails its tests with Zope3.2.

I agree, and have stopped forwarding these messages until I can be
certain they will be more useful. Even before you sent this mail;)
