Do you know the reason for this ?
I wish I did. The log message is pretty useless, unfortunately. I can
only urge committers to answer the "Why" in their log messages, not
(only) the "What". Most of us who read the commit messages understand
the "What", but not always the "Why". That's what log messages are for...
Let me introduce Alex Heavner. Alex is a student who is working with me
to try to advance some of the eggification efforts. We're working on
trying to get to the point where some of our application buildouts can
be built from eggs without using Zope 3 checkouts.
Yay! I think many of us (certainly I) are looking forward to this!
A second question on the topic: i am trying to use zope.annotation
outside zope app server - so far without success (problems starting
at the zope.app.container.contained dependency).
Can you confirm it is possible without writing my own
IAttributeAnnotatable implementation ?
Well, we've got plans to make zope.app a namespace package as well and
distribute pretty much independent packages like zope.app.container as
independent eggs. I hope that this will somewhat alleviate your
problem, though perhaps zope.annotation's dependency on
zope.app.container should be made optional as well.
The dependencies are a bit of a mess. I was working over the weekend on
trying to demonstrate how easy it was to use zope.component outside of
Zope and was dismayed by the tangle of dependencies. It is going to
take some time, patience and dedication to sort these dependencies out.
Agreed, but at least jotting them down is a start.
