Can we declare package-includes to be bad in general than and abandon it please?

The 'package-includes' mechanism is set up in a normal instance that site-zcml does not load *-ftesting.zcml slugs, whereas ftesting.zcml does includes *-ftesting.zcml slugs, so you can 'safely' place your ftesting configuration there. >> We're having a problem with the buildout integration at this point, as >> for the testrunner we are using the zc.recipe.testrunner recipe. >> >> However, the functional testing ZCML is placed in the instance part, but >> the testrunner does not know anything about this (should it?). > > You'll need to use the working-directory option in the testrunner recipe to > get it > to run from the instance.

I didn't make the connection in my brain to make the test runner change the working directory. That sounds reasonable right now. >> Here's the question: what would be a good way to get the test runner >> load the correct ZCML for running tests? > > IMO, the package you want to test should define it's own > ftesting.zcml and define a zcml-based test layer based on that. > see zc.sharing as an example. Ah. I forgot to use zc.sharing as a buildout example.
