Yes, the recipes are not working well on all platforms yet. Also, most of the scripts coming with the release do not have recipe equivalents yet. I see that localy did some work, but it is not yet complete. People trying z3c.formdemo on Windows had no luck, because zopectl does not work on Windows. :-( Also, we still lack a lot of documentation on how to get your project started using the egg-based releases. Downloading a single TGZ was really simple. Having said that, I think a Zope 3 meta egg would be a good start towards documenting how to build a Zope 3 application using eggs. Also, packages like z3c.formdemo give further help. Next, I think we need to identify the scripts that we want to support in our recipes. Here is a list of the ones that I think are important (from "Zope3/utilities"): * finddeps.py * i18nextract.py * i18nmergeall.py * i18nstats.py * runurl.py The others are not that important I think. Of course there are several scripts in "Zope3/bin", but I think those are covered by the current recipes as far as I can tell. Another final issue I see here are the problems we are having with the cheeseshop. I don't think it is ready for the Zope crowd yet. While I think that download.zope.org/distribution is used to get the packages, I have found that buildout comes to a halt when the cheeseshop is not working.
