Hi Sylvain,

> Not, really, but that's easy. In a meta.zcml somewhere, add an:

>   <include package="five.grok" />

What's the relationship between five.grok and grokcore.view? Is the 
latter a dependency on the former?

> In the package where your view is, add to the configure.zcml:

>   class MyView(five.grok.View):
>       five.grok.context(IMyContent)
>       five.grok.name(u"test.html")

Would it work to use the context() and name() directives from 
grokcore.view instead of five.grok?

Are these documented anywhere?

>        @action(u"Test me")

Cool! I'm more interested in a z3c.form version, though. Is anyone 
working on that? If not, I would be interested to figure out how to do that.

> Security can be done with grokcore.security.require ...

Cool! Does that take IPermission utility names? Or Zope 2 permission 

Thanks again!
