Yeah, you are right, I changed the errors since the last version of
mechanize -- 0.1.7b -- throws the wrong error. I should have used RE
normalizers to fix the problem instead of rewriting the doc tests. I will go
through the packages that are effected and fix that.
A couple other notes about the checkin.
Specifying versions in either the setup.py or buildout.cfg is a really bad
idea because it makes it impossible for people with different KGSs to work on
packages. The only sane solution that I see right now is to use KGSs, such as
http://download.zope.org/zope3.4, as index pages.
Also, I am not sure that including mechanize in the testbrowser release is a
good idea. What if other packages in my repos also use mechanize, but they
rely on the good and bad things of the released packages? I think this will
end in a big mess.
