Fedora Zope Special Interest Group


  • To build all Zope related productive packages for each release of Fedora and EL.
  • At least, to build Zope and Plone for EL6.

Prominent Packages


Zope2 is the foundations and the first floors of this skyscraper.

Robin 'cheese' Lee is working on packaging Zope2 and a bunch of its dependencies.

You can find the spec files of those packages from a git:;a=tree;h=refs/heads/master;hb=master And the Zope2 yum repo here: (only for F-13 and i686 and SRPM).

You can make a trivial test by these steps:

$ wget
$ su -c "cp zope-cheese.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/"
$ su -c "yum install zope"
$ su -c "service zope start"
$ xdg-open http://localhost:8080/

Topics to discus

  • Where to place the modules provided by the Zope2 source package itself
    • Candidates:
      • 1: a separate path like %{_libdir}/zope/lib/python
      • 2: %{python_sitearch}
    • This will decide where Products.* modules to be placed.
