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
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.
