Yes, we will stay with creating the release zpkg-based. We tried to come up with an egg/buildout-based approach to assemble something that looks like an old-style release but this didn't work out for the 3.4 release because of time constraints. > * We probably want to release eggs of all Zope 3 packages at the same > time.

There's been a small amount of discussion at PyCon and maybe in IRC that points out that we could have a directory on download.zope.org that contains all eggs for one release. You can point your find-links to that and get exactly the eggs of the 3.4 release (branch). Good points about this approach: - central visible place for each release - the goal to create a set of eggs that where tested together - the feeling for people to know "ok, this is what zope 3.4 is, just in a set of eggs instead of a tarball" Bad points: - we probably will use this approach to procrastinate on getting the dependencies right, meaning, if we get the dependencies (and the version dependencies) right, then we shouldn't need this release directory > I think we should answer these questions first so that we can actually > go ahead with the release.

Jupp. We might want to choose not uploading everything on cheeseshop initially, to make sure we're getting used to the procedures.
