Could you or someone else make final source releases of these first? I expect that some of these haven't changed since Zope 3.3. We should not make new releases of eggs if they haven't changed. One of the great things about eggs is that we can stop releasing non-changes. :)

In the short term, I'll go ahead and make windows eggs for the packages that have latest source distros.
I take that back. It looks like it's going to take more time than I have to figure out what releases to make. There are various versions floating around.

Yes, I noticed that too. I think the current situtation is way too confusing. We should decide which the authoritative source for the eggs is, the CheeseShop or http://download.zope.org/distribution. The advantage of the latter is that everybody with checkin rights can release a new egg, whereas on the CheeseShop it takes access rights.

Once we reach steady state, I'd like to see everything in the cheese shop. Unfortunately, I hate crapping poorly packaged eggs there. : ( I'm not sure what to do about that given the time availability of current volunteers.

It would be great if people who had time and were looking for easy projects would adopt some packages and make sure they are packaged well, especially with good overview information and on-line documentation. I don't have much time for this in the short term, although I'll certainly chip away at it in the long term.

Please either:
Point me at an existing source release, and I'll be happy to generate corresponding windows eggs. I made windows eggs for the latest version of zope.interface that's in pypi.

Great. So we have zope.interface and zope.proxy and there'll be no need for zope.thread. Which leaves us with:

http://download.zope.org/distribution/ zope.app.container-3.5.0a1.tar.gz
http://download.zope.org/distribution/ zope.i18nmessageid-3.4.0a1.tar.gz

I'll make Python 2.4 windows eggs today and put them there.

I realize that those aren't final releases, but they (most probably) haven't changed significantly after these releases were made, which would make it a waste of time if I had to tag and tarball them just for the sake of a different version ID.

We really need to get these to final. Most of our packages are stable and unchanging. Once we get them to final, we'll be able to mostly forget about them.
