Hi there,

* does anyone have any objections if I make eggs for various zc.* packages? In svn, this involves adding a setup.py to these packages, and to add a __init__.py to the zc package that they contain (which contains some egg-specific stuff).

Sounds great! (I assume the __init__ changes won't cause problems without setuptools around). Jim points out that Nathan Yergler has a script that can generate eggs from zpkg data; you might or might not find that to be easier. It's less of an obvious win with these packages that have little or no zpkg metadata already, but it might still be quicker in some cases (no idea myself).

* the setup.py I'll create will only work with setuptools installed; is this a problem?

Not from us. You'd maybe get even more warm fuzzies from people by making it not require setuptools, but that limitation doesn't bother us.

* what email address should I list for the author of some zc package? this is information that will appear in the cheeseshop.


* to get the full egg experience, I'd like to have them uploaded to the cheeseshop. I could do this myself, but they're not my packages. Can I? or does someone else want to do this? I'll of course gladly give admin rights for these packages to the real creators.

Jim also suggests the new, as-of-this-moment-no-longer-secret http:// download.zope.org/distribution/ as a possible location instead. All Zope committers have the appropriate privileges to scp to this directory. That's where he will be doing his egg work, at least until he thinks we have figured out the best way to make Zope eggs. It can be used a setuptools source.

If you want to use the cheeseshop anyway, that's ok too.
