Sounds great! (I assume the __init__ changes won't cause problems
without setuptools around).
I'll try to verify this. Note that this __init__.py change will occur in
an __init__.py that currently doesn't in fact *exist* in these packages
(in the 'zc' directory). Presumably you don't need it now in deployment.
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).
Thanks for the reference to that script. I'm going to avoid zpkg if I
can though, and I think you're right in that there's no ZPKG data to
speak of for these extensions.
* 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.
Okay, good. Warm fuzzies are nice, but I won't worry too much about that.
* 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.
Okay, that's interesting - I'll investigate this ex-secret location. :)
If you want to use the cheeseshop anyway, that's ok too.
Okay, I'll take a look around and decide what makes sense.
