[Grok-dev] Dependencies of megrok.form

Hi Steve,

  Thank you for your pointers. Adding find-link as you mentioned to my
~/.buildout/default.cfg made buildout happy. I am sorry, I searched
the wrong terms in google and made the wrong assumptions while
searching for a previous case.

  I guess the solution is two fold:

- People should avoid doing development at 3.30am and sending help
requests around that time (this is mostly pointed to myself).

- Each howto/sample app should be retested before 1.0. A lot of hard
and nice work was contributed there but I guess howtos just like
software just be tested by someone else than the author. I am willing
to jump in and retest each howto/sample.

I suggest I log the bugs on https://bugs.launchpad.net/grok no matter
whether they are zope or grok bugs. If they are in grok howtos we need
to at least follow-up on them from our side. We might decide to retire
a library or howto if no one is willing to maintain it or it no longer
works out?

Thanks again!
