Can someone walk me through like the idiot I feel right now why having "develop = ." results in src/zc/ngi/ ending up on the python path?
It doesn't. It results, in the case of zc.ngi, in src being on the Python path. The develop option takes one or more paths, separated by spaces. :) Each path should point to a setup script or to a directory containing one. Each setup script is run in "develop" mode creating a "develop" egg which is just a file containing the path to a project's sourc directory. This directory is added to the path. Note that the project's source directory is controlled by the setup script. It need not be a src subdirectory of a project. Jim -- Jim Fulton Zope Corporation
