Some notes on the release process here:

* Please also don't forget to add a changelog entry in README.txt, 
especially if you're adding features. If there's no README.txt yet, this 
is a good time to give it one. It should start out with a simple 
paragraph and have at least one section called "Changes". You could then 
use its contents as the long_description in setup.py. Other packages 
(e.g. zope.proxy or zope.publisher) can serve as examples.

* I see that zope.location 3.4.0b1 is out as several "continuous 
releases". This model sucks, IMO. I think it's time to tg 3.4.0b1 and 
push it out as a release, not only to download.zope.org but also to the 
CheeseShop (which is much more usable with ppix now, so I less and less 
see the need for download.zope.org).

Whenever I've come across a package that I've worked on in the past few 
weeks, I've done the things I described above. I know it takes you a 
couple of minutes, but those are well-invested, I think (packages will 
appear as a decent release with at least some kind of decent front page 
on the CheeseShop, and the changelog is properly taken care of).
