Really ? Here, It start packaging with zope 2.7.3 : when I tried to create 
from scratch a (new) plone site, I went on python error, something like 
"setDefaultProperties: got only 7 arguments, 8 are required" ...

So I came backup to zope 2.7.2, and everything is fine for the creation of a 
new plone site.

Since I heavily work on packging the past 2/3 days, perhaps I get confused 
between zope and zope-CMF .. so I will try asap to package and use Zope 
2.7.3. I must confess that I'm a newbie about plone/zope stuff :(

Please note that in my whole packaging, I only use "release" source tarballs 
for each packages, not CVS nor beta version.

oups, I made a mistake: 2.0.4 provides Epoz-0.8.2, of course, and I use 
realease tarball.

Thanks for your reply.
