I now changed the whole setup according to Brandons suggestion. In a new
grokproject you now find the templates for config files in etc/ while
the generated output files can be found in parts/etc/ (unreleased yet).

This means that with a new grokproject release the paster setup must be
started using::

  $ bin/paster serve parts/etc/deploy.ini

or (as before)::

  $ bin/proj-ctl start|stop|restart|fg

The upcoming ``grokcore.startup`` package will also reflect this new
default path.

What currently is a bit annoying: when starting an instance in
foreground, there is a message displayed saying::

  $ ./bin/paster serve parts/etc/deploy.ini 
  2009-02-06T12:06:47 WARNING root Developer mode is enabled: this is a
  security risk and should NOT be enabled on production servers. 
  Developer mode can be turned off in etc/zope.conf

The real path of zope.conf, however, is ``parts/etc/zope.conf``. Is
there a way to fix this?

Best regards,
