Each Product has two lists of dependencies: One in DEPENDENCIES.txt and

The setup.py files contain only 'setuptools' and 'five.localsitemanager'
"five.localsitemanager >= 0.2",
# 'Zope >= 2.10',
all other setup.py files:
Until recently, the Products themselves didn't use setuptools. Revision
85287 (http://svn.zope.org/?rev=85287&view=rev) changed that. It is no

I'm just asking. If there are good reasons, I'm fine with adding the
As soon as we have a decision, the relevant files should be updated. Can
we get rid of the DEPENDENCIES.txt files and specify *all* dependencies
in the setup.py files?
