Great, thank you!

Hm, I don't think there's a tutorial for this yet; would be another
very useful thing to have! Certainly you can get some ideas from
looking at megrok.form, megrok.rdb, megrok.rdf or Philipp's
megrok.menu, or all the other megrok packages that are in
svn.zope.org. I think often people just start with a normal
grokproject and then remove what's not necessary.



gives you some idea on how to install a package in development mode in
another Grok application, useful when you want to try out your
megrok.* code before releasing it. This example is for grok itself,
but if you were to have some megrok.foo egg you wanted to install
you'd add it to your 'develop' line the same way (and you can ignore
the 'extends' stuff).
