I remember this thread. We didn't come to a conclusion, did we?

Just tried the includeDependencies approach now with megrok.chameleon
and it worked nicely. Hm, I included hints to this problem in the howto
but I would prefer if we could remove it, as it might confuse readers.
Installing packages is not the main target of the howto and there are
also setup infos on the linked pypi pages.

Testing megrok.genshi was not possible as it looks like this package is
outdated and does not work with current grok:

"/home/.../eggs/megrok.genshi-1.0-py2.5.egg/megrok/genshi/components.py", line 45, in GenshiMarkupTemplateFactory
    AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute

AFAICS ITemplateFileFactory was removed from grok.interfaces (moved to
grokcore.view.interfaces, right?) in december 2008. Time for an update?

Best regards,
