Hello, *

How do you develop in zope 3?

First a few words:

After trying from time to time Zope 3 (X3, 3.0...) finally a month ago I
jumped in full time. Thanks to Philipp von Weitershausen's book, my
previous problems were solved. So I downloaded the zope 3 tar.gz and
started to practice... only to discover eggs, buildouts, paster and
friends (yes, pretty much I've been living under a programmer's rock).
Well, no problem. After reading http://pypi.python.org/pypi/zopeproject/
and http://pypi.python.org/pypi/zc.buildout I was on track again. So
basically, what I do is:

  # Create a virtual environment
  $ python2.4 bin/virtual-python.py --prefix=~/zope3/
  # install easy_setup
  $ ~/zope3/bin/python bin/ez_setup.py
  # Install zopeproject (of course, all these steps are made just once)
  $ ~/zope/bin/easy_install zopeproject
  # make the projects
  $ ~/zope/bin/zopeproject webdev

and then edit setup.py, buildout.cfg. and work in src/webdev. So long, so
fine. But here come my doubts:

*) Is it the way the experienced zope developers work? How do you set the
environment for a site or a package development?
*) I'm working in more than a package. I'm developing a blog, a user
manager, etc. Should I create a new project for each package? How do I
include in my site (under development) my packages (under development)?
*) What recipe do you use to fetch a package via svn?

Thanks in advance
Thanks in advance
