Jim asked if I tested all branches with all pertinent Python versions.  After almost two weeks, I replied "no."  Only the branches that I considered deploying internally were tested in that way.  I haven't heard if Jim wants me to make all branches pass that way, but I offered.

From my perspective, sure.  Use the most recent branch and report problems.  I'm sure there will be some.  I need to make bootstrap more defensive, for instance.  Maybe I'll have time for that today.

bzr branch is lp:~gary/zc.buildout/python-support-8-support-subprocess and svn is http://svn.zope.org/repos/main/zc.buildout/branches/gary-8/ .
