Thanks Jim. Where is PILwoTk located at the moment? I'll look to pull it
in with a dev egg in the short term in the buildout to satisfy the
dependency until this is more widely available.
With all the packages and dependencies to look after in a buildout,
particularly for a larger zope app, something like a pre-flight (that
could be executed as an option to a buildout) might be valuable. I think
something that could analyze, assess, verify, and print dependency
information without running a complete buildout might be the ticket if
it is possible.
The general idea comes to me from other systems I have used in the past
(such as xml publishing toolchains) where you run a pre-flight to
determine whether large documents will run through the toolchain
successfully without actually constructing the document.

Hi. I have already managed to repackage a couple of apps using eggs
only zope (zc.zope3recipes on svn.zope.org). Yesterday, I began
creating another eggs-only application as a test however this app
requires z3c.viewlet. The z3c.viewlet package has a dependency upon
zope.viewlet. When running the buildout stopped during the zope egg
installation. I deleted the zope.viewlet egg and reran the buildout
and it stopped at the same point. Hoping someone can advise if this a
possible problem with zope.viewlet or how I might debug this a bit
more to complete the buildout. Many thanks.
The error in the buildout is as follows:
buildout: Installing testapp
zc.buildout.easy_install: Getting new distribution for zope.viewlet
zc.buildout.easy_install: Got zope.viewlet 3.4dev-r73833
Couldn't find index page for 'PILwoTk' (maybe misspelled?)
zc.buildout.easy_install: Getting new distribution for PILwoTk
Getting distribution for PILwoTk
Error: Couldn't find a distribution for PILwoTk.
zope.viewlet doesn't depend on PILwoTk. The above output from buildout
doesn't even say that it is (it was getting a *new* distribution for
zope.viewlet accidentally at the same time, it seems). A google search
for PILwoTk only turned up references to z3c.image .
Buildout needs to provide more help in this situation.
PILwoTk is a special distribution of PIL that I created that installs
with setuptools (easy_install or buildout) and doesn't require Tk. :)
I'd be happy to make it more widely available. AFAIK, there isn't any
other distribution of PIL that installs cleanly with setuptools.
