Hi there. I downloaded documentlibrary to experiment a bit. Though I got a traceback on zc.recipe.egg during the process, it is is clear to me the power of buildout - thanks Jim! It also raised a few questions for me:

1. For zope3 recipe, how would one omit certain packages from [zope3] part of the buildout 2. How could one omit replace a package with a customized version of same stored in a private svn for [data] part 3. How can one pull from private svn repository for the [instance] part where you don't have an egg registered with PyPI?

It strikes me that this is great way to package a finished app, and also try different things out without concern for your system site-packages. But I am of course interested in sandbox scenario just as much or more since I am always working with more that a single package at a time that are in a changing state always. It definitely looks at though I need to improve my egg lingo due to the different ways of describing eggs :-) Many thanks.

Regards,
David

Hi Kapil. Many thanks for your reply. I will be sure to look at this. Examining a few real applications that make use of buildout should definitely help make things clearer.

infrae's documentlibrary looks like a good example of using the buildout machinery for a custom application.

It is perhaps a bit too early for this discussion. All I can say is that it is getting tougher to keep track of packages and dependencies when you want to mix and match for different instances with packages of different versions coming from private and public repository sources. Given that there are packages I want to remove (packages I don't use), replace (like a custom zodb so that I don't need to change zodb imports all over the place) or add in z3 just adds to the mix. It would be great if someone could paint a clear picture of the best way to deal with this so the packaging is more transparent and less of a distraction for development. Many thanks.

I am just beginning to look at buildout. I want to be able to combine my z3 packages with some of z3's, also replacing some of z3's packages for customized versions of the same package. Is anyone doing this or similar yet that they might comment on how useful buildout is on anything more complicated. Many thanks.

David
