We're just talking about Zope here, and installing Zope into
its own buildout (possibly sharing eggs with another). This
means we don't care much about installing the documentation
anyway, just having the libraries importable so that Zope can
do its work on windows.
Yes, but that's exactly the problem with the buildout
The installation process right now with buildout is
not able to deal with anything which is not a egg and
it's horrible if it comes to 3rd party python library
weher no eggs are available. At least on windows.
Windows compatibility is an important question. Unfortunately, I
don't have anything to contribute to it.
However, it's worth noting to clarify this discussion that buildout
is being successfully used to install a wide variety of software on
*nix systems (I know of Red Hat, Ubuntu, and OS X). This includes
software that does not have eggs (such as M2Crypto) and software
that does not have much to do directly with Python (such as libxml2
