There are two conflicting goals here: (1) testing that an egg's tests fail when its dependency list is incomplete (2) testing whether any of the other eggs that depend on this one break due to recent changes > I thought Roger was one of the folks looking to *reduce* the set of > dependencies his application had on zope3 coee -- testing against the > meta-egg actually makes that problem worse. I think Roger wants (2). Marius Gedminas -- "...the only place for 63,000 bugs is a rain forest"
