Is that with the trunk of groktoolkit or the branch where we did the 
dependency refactoring?

Anyway, I think the best way to maintain this is to be seriously 
committed to maintaining it. That is, someone needs to do what you just 
did, and we need to make the decision to drop packages if they are 
broken and nobody steps up to repair them.

I also had trouble building it each time I did the work on the 
dependency factoring; the ecosystem made the buildout just run so much 
more slowly that in the end I took it out of the branch. I can imagine 
that's what people don't like about zopeapp.cfg in ztk either, but I 
haven't noticed the speed issue there so much - perhaps I didn't mind as 
much because it's less broken. :)
