The versions you mention are all 'Zope 2'. I haven't tested yet with any
Zope 2 stuff, but I'm pretty sure, there will be problems with it.
Apparently this is the case.

I am not sure, but read somewhere, that z3c packages like
'z3c.testsetup' stand for 'Zope 3 Community' stuff (not: Zope 2
community stuff). So I saw no need to check for Zope 2 compatibility.
Anyway, I should make that point clear in the docs and eventually try to
enable Zope 2 support. At least I will change 'Zope' to 'Zope 3' in the

BTW: have you tested with Zope 2.10?

I currently would like to make the package robust enough for usage with
Zope 3. After that I might ensure Zope 2 compatibility, but this too
will cover only Zope versions >= 2.10. Although I'm not too much into
Zope 2, I guess your problem depends on the dummy zcml files that come
with z3c.testsetup.

Kind regards,
