There is supposed to be a dance in Python itself for declaring a namespace package. Framkly, anybody who wants to play along *without* setuptools installed has rocks in their heads: distutils is too wanky to use by itself for "complicated" cases, and setuptools makes it just barely tolerable. > 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.

Note that I am actively working in that directory on eggifying a number of the "top-level" zope packages in "released" verisons (typically in the flavors which shipped with ZopeX3.0.0 and Zope3.2). > If you want to use the cheeseshop anyway, that's ok too. - -- =================================================================== Tres Seaver +1 202-558-7113 [EMAIL PROTECTED] Palladion Software "Excellence by Design" http://palladion.com -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFEMsG5+gerLs4ltQ4RAq4rAKDCwrsDs/nmkJVv7ASzuhLsa81LOQCeIt6/ mBewTTCRqCgcK5EjiAO039U= =GITX -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ Zope3-dev mailing list Zope3firstname.lastname@example.org Unsub: http://mail.zope.org/mailman/options/zope3-dev/archive%40mail-archive.com
