Hi Lennart. Thank you for your reply. These queries are general as I am committing to Z3 for this project. The fact that Zope is a bit different than a regular python package itself has triggered these thoughts. At this point, I don't have anything that doesn't work as I am just getting started with this project. As I work through the app and attempt to package it, I may have specific issues that I will bring forward. I am also interested in the experiences of others that may have done something similar and what challenges they may have faced (particularly with packaging) if any.

Hi. I am interested in Z3 for a desktop app and would be looking at
using py2exe and py2app for packaging along with the gui and its
functionality. It seems at the outset this might be sort of messy since
Zope typically expects to live somewhere other than site-packages at the
outset and then has its own packages to deal with.

Yes, but the zope packages only expect to be somewhere on the python
path. That this is usually not in site-packages doesn't matter.

I am curious to know whether Zope's packaging will
eventually change to be like other things python (and other frameworks
like TurboGears or Django) in this regard that are happy to live in

They should be, yes. Do you have an example of a zope package that
doesn't work if it is located in site-packages?
