Maintenance information


This is internal documentation for Zope developers having to create official Zope releases.

Release process


The following persons have access to the Zope package on PyPI (in order to release new versions):

  • Hanno Schlichting
  • Michael Howitz
  • Tres Seaver
  • Jens Vagelpohl

Steps for creating a new Zope release

  • Create releases for the packages mentioned in buildout.cfg below auto-checkout.

  • Check the versions.cfg file for outdated or updated packages and update version information where necessary:

    $ bin/checkversions buildout.cfg


There is no version pin for zc.buildout as it has to be installed in the virtual environment but checkversions also prints its version number.
