Not quite. By default, the project name will be used as the directory
name for the sandbox and as the name of the egg (in setup.py). The lower
case of the project name will be used for the package name.
Can I override this to get a package name that is different than the
* The name of the directory containing the sandbox is completely
irrelevant. You can completely move it around, so long as you run
* The name of the package is completely arbitrary as well. You may
rename it if you wish. Just make sure you update every occurrence of
that name in the Python code and ZCML as well.
* The name of the egg is defined in setup.py::
You may change it any time, as long as you also update buildout.cfg
(where the egg name is mentioned a couple of times) and then run
Thanks for bringing up this question. I will add this to zopeproject's
Also, when I run bin/test, I get:

However, I find that there is such an ftesting.zcml file - just not
in the "right" place. Symlinking/copying it solves the problem:
ln -s $HOME/py24/MYPROJ/src/MYPROJ/ftesting.zcml
It seems you're using the old default functional test layer from
zope.app.testing.functional. In Zope 3 instances there used to be a
global ftesting.zcml that this layer would look for and load. In a
buildout, that'd be the parts/test directory.
Nowadays we define package-specific functional test layers. Your
zopeproject-generated code does that too. It comes with a custom
ftesting.zcml (which you found already) and defines a FunctionalLayer in
pkg.testing based on that file. You should apply this layer to your
functional test suites.
For your convenience, the pkg.testing module also defines
FunctionalDocFileSuite, FunctionalDocTestSuite and a FunctionalTestCase
variants with that layer applied already. So if you import them for
pkg.testing rather than zope.app.testing.functional, you won't have to
do this symlinking.
This is documented already, by the way:
