Is there a roadmap somewhere?
Yes. Both in the wiki (wiki.zope.org/zope3) and on launchpad.
Care to share a URL?
It seems that something should be recorded at:
And link it in here?
Who is in charge of the 3.4 release?
I want to get to the point where the packages have their own release
cycles independent of Zope 3
releases. For example, I want to stop giving eggs 3.x releases
numbers just because the package
was included in a 3.x release.
Just to make this explicit: we've gotta stick with the version numbers
that we gave out already, right?
It's complicated. :) We have lots of choices. As long as the code
for most packages actually lives in the Zope 3 svn tree, I think the
version numbers have to be linked. I don't think we want to move
them out of the Zope 3 tree until we have a good story for working on
Zope 3 itself, although, that could be debated. We also need to worry
about the (many) people who use checkouts for their own development.
Getting externals for everything would be really annoying.
I expect that in the next few weeks, we (ZC) will switch to using
eggs rather than checkouts. When we've managed to do that, I'll be
more comfortable telling other people that they should do it. :)
Assuming that someone decides to move forward with 3.4 release sans
eggification, then I'd like to decouple the 3.4 release from the
I agree here as well. Does that mean we will not advertise the
availability of the Zope 3.4 code as eggs from the release
Yes. I doubt they will be truly usable as eggs anyway. Independent
of the 3.4 release, I think we should avoid advertising the Zope 3
eggs until we've whipped them into shape. (So to speak ;)
- I worry that download.zope.com/distribution is too
We saw what happened when I started using it at the sprint. ;) Low-
is good, but at least some of the current limitations are impractical
They are practical for supporting current experimentation, I think,
but I think we need something better to move beyond the current
