Hi Jim. Many thanks. I created a list of paths to return and am just
extending the list for each call to zc.buildout.easy_install.scripts
which is fine. I was just curious since there is no uninstall in this
case so thought I would ask.

Hi. I have created a recipe where I am attempting to install multiple
scripts to bin as part of an install method. As a result I have a few
calls to zc.buildout.easy_install.scripts but am returning nothing
from the install method.
The recipe emits a warning indicating 'A path or iterable os paths
should be returned'. In fact I cannot return a list indicating it
needs a string. Is it necessary to return anything from the install
Yes. You must return an string or an iterable of strings.
Because that's the API. :)
Returning None is almost always a bug. If you really want to say you
didn't install anything, return ().
If you are installing scripts, then you should return their paths so
they get uninstalled if your part is uninstalled.
