If there isn't, you could write one on the Zope 3 wiki. ;-) > I'd imagine it goes something like: > > 1 - checkout svn url you wish to develop with Yep. svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/Zope3/trunk Zope3 or svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/Zope3/branches/3.3 Zope3 or replace the svn+ssh with svn > 2 - do some kind of inplace build By typing 'make'. > 3 - point your mkzopeinstance-created instance at the checkout I usually don't bother with mkzopeinstance, just symlink my packages into src/ and drop a one-liner file into zopeskel/etc/package-includes/. I'm not sure mkzopeinstance even works in a svn checkout. IIRC I saw a couple of reports of it failing when run from the checkut. The response usually was "you're not supposed to use it from a checkout; run make install first, then use mkzopeinstance from the installation directory". > 4 - develop This step looks deceptively simple. :-) > 5 - run tests python test.py [options] (in the root directory of the checkout). > How do I do 2 and 5? > > For 2, how do I do a suitable in-place build on Linux?

I ran away to more developer-friendly OSes a long time ago. > 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? python test.py -s module I am not sure if there's a way to make Zope 3 and its test runner notice my packages without symlinking them into src/. zc.buildout may be the answer. I haven't used it on my projects yet, because what I already use works well enough for me.
