Hugo is right, the whole stuff that was in former times generated in
local startup.py is now provided by the grokcore.startup package.

Instructions how to update old projects with a grokproject-generated
startup.py can be found here:


The WSGI application factory accepts a parameter ``zope_conf`` from
local conf, where you can specify the path to zope.conf. This variable
can for instance be set in your project's deploy.ini like this::

  # set the name of the zope.conf file
  zope_conf = %(here)s/zope.conf

Best regards,
