This recipe makes it easy to keep your buildout's file up to date.

Project description


This recipe satisfies the (perhaps not-so-common) use case of “I want to keep my buildout file up to date without having to manually download it from” It also makes it possible to add a file to a buildout created via buildout init. In other words, with this recipe you can avoid having to do:

% svn cat svn:// >

Just add a new section, then refer to it in your buildout section’s parts. E.g.:

parts =

recipe = collective.recipe.bootstrap

Now whenever you run buildout, this recipe will update your file.
