KGS Status

3.4.1b1 has been released. Since last week all tests past and an announcement has been made to encourage testing as documentation is outstanding. Another release is planned this weekend.

Adam to coordinate releases with Jens. More information on release procedure or the steps required so that the KGS can be released directly would be appreciated.

Baiju suggested at least an index view for http://downloads.zope.com

Windows Builds

Sidnei has made his Amazon image available to Adam for testing who will head this effort. It was agreed that Python 2.5 on Windows 64 will never be available for technical reasons.

The Zope Foundation has agreed to cover the costs for the buildbots but requires someone to be officially responsible for this. (Adam to coordinate with Christian Theune)

Still no feedback from Microsoft about the MSDN licences. From last week there still seemed to be some confusion about the validity of the licences for the proposed use. (Continue to badger Microsoft about this and while we’re at it - has anyone asked them about using Azure for the Windows buildbots?)

ZTK Status

There is agreement in the steering committee and progress. Christophe has a tool for detecting upgrades http://bitbucket.org/ccomb/z3c.checkversions which will go into the Zope repository at some point. (Check versions into repository and an issue tracker on Lauchpad)


A reminder to all that there will be a bugday next week and all are invited to sign up http://wiki.zope.org/ztk/BugDay20100519 Participation can be limited to reviewing bugs with patches.

Christian Theune hopes to do some triaging at the weekend, but there’s more triaging required.


The minutes of all meetings will be archived at svn.zope.org/repos/main/zopetoolkit/doc/source as per Hanno’s recent suggestion.
