The latest release of ``lovely.recipe`` (finally) has the svn link
replaced by a http-link. However, in the long run, I think that
``lovely.recipe`` is a bit 'overdressed' for our purposes. We want only
some i18n-scripts to be generated and get a bunch of extra functionality
nobody uses. Beside this we get lots of unnecessary dependencies.

Looking over svn.zope.org, there is the ``z3c.recipe.i18n`` maintained
by Roger Ineichen which confines itself to do i18n-stuff. Looks like
what we really want. Unfortunately I could not find it in the PyPI
repository although an approriate URL in setup.py is set. As a result
buildout fails to download the recipe. If this recipe would be on PyPI,
I'd think about switching to it. 

Are there any reasons against doing so?

How can we motivate Roger to publish the code on PyPI?

Best regards,
