Ok, what I will do:
1) release Grok 1.1rc1
2) update the groktoolkit to refer to this 1.1rc1
3) release the groktoolkit as 1.1rc1 as well
4) upload the grok.cfg from the groktoolkit to
The grokproject tool download the releaseinfo/grok-1.1rc1.cfg file into the
newly created project as a versions.cfg file to support offline building.
The grok.cfg in the groktoolkit extends the ztk.cfg in the zopetoolkit and if we
upload it to releaseinfo/grok-1.1rc.cfg without modifications, we will break the
offline building possbility, since the downloaded file will still extend the
In other words, I think the grok.cfg file in a groktoolkit _release_ needs to
include the versions of the zopetoolkit and not extend the ztk.cfg.
This will be a extra step in the release proces. When doing the release I'll
change the release notes accordingly.
