Studying the psycopgda repository for branches/tags I figured there was a tag set to match psycopgda with each Zope version released, but no luck. There are no tags at all in several years.

The package has obviously been poorly maintained. Are you a contributor yet, Jeff? :)

A good question considering what I'm wrestling with at the moment. I would very much like to get involved. At PyCon I filled out the contributor form, got write access and got too busy to use it (plus it was during the quiet time before the 3.3.0 release). Now my ssh key isn't working, so I need to see someone about resetting it. But with the Zope Foundation situation, I may very well need to sign a new contributor form to do that, but I'm not sure.

I also would like to create a new project on, to contain the various Zope3 components I'm creating for the Python advocacy effort. However I'm not sure whether I can just create another "z3c.advocacy" namespace or "myname.advocacy". Is there a requirement that everything on be licensed under the ZPL? The PSF would like what I produce to be under either the Apache or Artistic license. If the license is a problem I can use instead I suppose, but the components are of a general nature and I'd like to contribute them to the Zope community.

Poking around, I've got a question regarding how you avoid overwrite conflicts on the file "z3c/" file. I see different projects using different such files, some with code in them (extfile). If several z3c components are installed in a site, it seems that file is a hotspot of contention.

Any suggestions? With the popularity of psycopg + Zope3, any chance we could get psycopgda added into the Zope3 distribution to mitigate this chasing?

I don't think that can happen. We're thinking about making the core smaller, not bigger :). Also, not everyone has or needs psycopg, so the testing would become a burden.

Understandable. By the way, revision 40054 is the one that works with Zope 3.2.1 and I'd like to put a meaningful tag on that when I get access. I've also got a simple patch to psycopgda that lets it use psycopg2 and fallback to psycopg1 if not found. It's been working great here for almost a year, with psycopg2.
