Plone, zc.buildout, and Etch
Is anyone else out there using buildout to create Plone 3 installs on
I've been running into really strange errors when using buildout on Etch
which no one in the Plone community is able to help me with. I cannot
even complete a default buildout on Etch using Debian Python packages.
I can however, do this on successfully on Sid. I haven't tried Lenny.
If I use the ez_setup.py script on Etch to to download and install the
Python setup tools package I can build a default Plone 3 install,
however, I then run into problems adding third party tools such as
Ploneboard, SimpleAttachment, and Clouseau. As I need the third party
tools for the functions they provide this isn't something I live with.
I can use the Plone Unified Installer, but would much prefer using
buildout as it is so much more flexible.
This all seems to be tied to changes made in the Debian Python packages
in Etch that have been made since January 30 of this year. Why that
date? Because I successfully used buildout on a server running Etch on
that day. I also added the above third party tools successfully.
Sometime since then something has changed in the Debian Python packages,
or so it would appear anyway.
