Hi All,

It's been way too long since I did that, but how do I go about getting an svn checkout of Zope 3 that I can develop with? Is there a how-to somehwere?

I'd imagine it goes something like:

1 - checkout svn url you wish to develop with

2 - do some kind of inplace build


3 - point your mkzopeinstance-created instance at the checkout

or simply create an instance with Zope3checkout/bin/mkzopeinstance.

4 - develop

5 - run tests

bin/test -s yourpackage

How do I do 2 and 5?

For 2, how do I do a suitable in-place build on Linux? Are there still up-to-date pre-built binary bits for Windows that I can unpack? If so, where do I get them from?

Download a standard Zope 3 release from or use the trunk and install the PYDs from

For 5, how do I run tests for a module in the checkout with the testrunner, as opposed to tests for a module in the instance?

I'll take a guess that it's not too different from building zope 2:
$ python build_ext -i

This is not enough. You need:

  $ python2.4 build_ext -i install_data --install-dir .

or simply run 'make'.
