If I understand both "zopeproject" and your question (and I'm less confident about whether I understand your question), then this might be the answer you need: The "zopeproject" script is *not* designed to install Zope. That is, it's not, once you've developed your Zope project in one place, the way you "make Zope appear" on the actual hosting server so that your application can run. Instead, "buildout" is how you get Zope installed most of the time. Your "setup.py" for your application is what will list Zope as a dependency, and will result in its being fetched and installed before you run your application. So what's the point of "zopeproject"? It's just there to write your first "setup.py" and "buildout.py", to create your "src/" directory for you, and get things set up for development. But once you've started your project, you'll never need "zopeproject" again; you can immediately uninstall it if you want! :-) So you'll never need it installed on a "production box", only on development boxes where you first create projects out of nothing. Let me know whether this answer was helpful, or a statement of the obvious that is beside the actual point of your question. :-) -- Brandon Craig Rhodes [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://rhodesmill.org/brandon _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
