There had been some discussion on this list a week ago when we discovered,
during some dependency clean-up at gocept, that ISite being defined in a
zope.app package caused a lot of non-zope.app packages to indirectly
depend on a wagon load full of zope.app stuff by way of zope.location.
So the idea to solve this was two-fold:
- Step 1: Move ISite to zope.location to kill the dependency of
zope.location on zope.app.component. This would not affect anything
aside from the dependencies, but that would be a gain of itself.
- Step 2: Something should be done about the naming of ISite and the
non-separation of the concepts of a component registration context and
locality in the zope.location sense. This requires further discussion
and is a more long-term goal than cleaning up the spurious dependency on
zope.app.component. That discussion is, however, not affected by ISite
being moved to zope.location.
I hope this makes things a bit clearer.
