When GrokProject is installed, it creates:


Which contains:

z3c.recipe.eggbasket = 0.4.0

I believe someone mentioned a fix to this being in trunk, but I'm not
sure where.

No, but next time we go through the process, I will give it a shot.

I will have to discuss it with my boss, but I believe we can assist in
pushing Windows issues. I expect to be deploying Grok to 1 or 2
locations a month over the next year, so I'm in a good position to
provide ongoing testing.
