Hi Santiago,

first of all: thanks for the bug and trying the HOWTO.

Apparently the zope.app.securitypolicy.zopepolicy package is missing in
your setup and by replacing it with zope.securitypolicy.zopepolicy you
had success. I'm glad you posted this problem here.

You did exactly the right thing :-) I assume you ran grokproject before
and are using Grok 0.12?

Projects generated by grokproject unfortunately get an ftesting.zcml,
that includes the wrong zopesecuritypolicy package. I wasn't aware of
this yet.

This changed from Grok 0.11.1 to 0.12, so I'd consider this a bug in
grokproject. If it creates Grok 0.12 projects, then it should also
generate appropriate ftesting.zcml files.

Could you file a bug report on launchpad
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/grok/), saying that grokproject generates
faulty ftesting.zcmls? I'll do a patch as soon as possible.

Seems we have a lot of stuff to do for grokproject on the upcoming

I'll update the HowTo shortly.

Thanks for the report and

kind regards,
