Creates a setup for new OpenCore site deployments that use Fassembler
This is a “bootstrap” package that is used to generate new deployments of the OpenCore software stack, the web-based group collaboration toolkit that powers coactivate.org and other websites.
This package provides two commands for bootstrapping an OpenCore site installation:
new-opencore-site will create a directory structure useful for managing an ongoing OpenCore site deployment. Run this once, when you are first deploying your OpenCore site.
It will place a file opencore.conf in the generated directory. You can edit the configuration in this file; it will be used by the rebuild-opencore command to determine what profile to build by default; what portset to configure the stack on; and other build parameters that are useful to manage on a per-site basis.
rebuild-opencore-site will initiate a new Fassembler build for your OpenCore site, using your desired configuration.
A third command is provided as well:
- new-opencore-site-config will print a site configuration TEMPLATE to stdout. If you have a site layout already created by OpenplansBoot this may be useful for quickly generating a configuration that can be used with rebuild-opencore-site.

Pull fassembler-boot from github.com/socialplanning instead of svn.socialplanning.org (sigh)
Pull fassembler-boot from svn.socialplanning.org instead of svn.openplans.org
The profile_url and default_profile_url can now be specified as svn://, svn+ssh://, and file:// URLs also. Previously the only options were http://, https:// and relative paths (which are treated as suffixes against https://svn.openplans.org/svn/build/requirements)
Update location of default requirement profile to svn.socialplanning.org instead of svn.openplans.org
Prepend file:// to etc_svn_repo if no protocol is specified.
Fix bug in newbuild.sh script, where it looks for “fassembler-req.txt”, which was failing when using a relative requirements profile directory rather than an absolute path.
Check that a builds directory exists under base_dir before running newbuild.sh
Add an optional parameter num_extra_zopes which, if set, will cause N extra zope instances to be installed at the end of the build.
Requires fassembler>=0.5 (0.4 which added the extrazope project and 0.5 which added the num_extra_zopes setting); opencore-fassembler_projects>=0.3 which now respects the num_extra_zopes setting when building the frontend; and libopencore>=0.4 which allows load-balanced proxying to a set of zope servers.
Fixed typo in in-process docs.
Removed fassembler_projects parameter. Instead, the bootstrap script now looks for a file “fassembler-req.txt” in the profile directory to be built, since profiles should manage their own requirements.
Renamed rebuild-opencore -> rebuild-opencore-site
Added new-opencore-site-config command that simply prints the config template to stdout (useful for existing deployment structures)
Passing profile_url as a positional arg was broken. It works now.
New package opencore-fassembler_boot, based on OpenplansBoot.
Redesigned to use configuration files managed per-site, and to make the newbuild.sh script non-public.
- Remove –use-plone3 as an option; obsoleted by default-build.ini
