You can upload to both the cheeseshop and another place you list in

I noticed that z3c.widget has a tagged release on svn but there is no

have it registered there.
you bring up an interesting point...
the current practice (at least here at lovely systems, and presumably
a lot of other developers) is to add download.zope.org/distribution
(or a mirror of it) to your find-links.
recently some people started registering packages (and uploading eggs
) to cheeseshop. this makes totally sense for zc.buildout,
lovely.buildouthttp,... but i'm not sure about zope packages.
because of this mix you might end up in getting the wrong egg. or not
finding a egg you downloaded a few days ago. in case pypi is down
you're totally stuck.
well, i understand that the stability of pypi is much better lately
and the simple interface, the and ppix mirrors make the index lookup
much faster as well.
but for me there are still two remaining issues:
- the eggs are hosted on cheesehop as well, it's not easy
(commandline) to host the egg externally or to specify a mirror to use
when pulling the eggs. that's not acceptable for production deployments.
- by default "setup.py sdist bdist_egg register upload" hides the old
releases, which is not acceptable as we nail all versions for
deployments. if someone releases a new version, the older ones
disappear and buildout (with nailed versions) stops and complains not
finding the egg.
That's not true, is it? If I remember correctly it is only hidden from
the user-friendly web interface. The simple index as used by buildout
and setuptools stills sees the older versions.
