Which by default is every time somebody runs a buildout, right?


I think this depends on the use cases.  I think most people would
like to get bug fixes.  The intent of such a 3.4 index would be to
give people the latest 3.4 updates which should give no new
features.  This is intended to mimick what happens with linux package

Ah, good point. But I think what Martijn is saying is that when we
come with new *features* this should be made into a new page. Which
would then be Zope 3.5, or something.  Or did I misunderstand him?

I don't know if you did or not. I'll just note that different indexes might have different update policies. A Zope 3.4 index should only get bug fixes.

But you are right, small bugfixes, and in particular security fixes,
should indeed go into the already existing page. Which means all you
would need to get a security fix would be to run buildout, possibly
forcing it to check for new versions if that is set to false by
default. That would indeed be a very nice feature.

I think so.
