Problem getting cfg file from download.zope.org

Hi everybody, be careful relaunching old buildouts, you can get strange errors.

This happened to me launching a 4.2.6 buildout.

The problem is that:

which currently is this snippet of html.

[ale@kenobi ~]$ curl http://download.zope.org/zopetoolkit/index/1.0.8/zopeapp-versions.cfg
<!DOCTYPE html><body style="padding:0; margin:0;"><html><body><iframe src="http://mcc.godaddy.com/park/oJWwpv5vMKD=" style="visibility: visible;height: 100%; position:absolute" allowtransparency="true" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" frameborder="0" width="100%"></iframe></body></html>

Is there any chance that this link will be fixed?

Anyway this is the cache copy of the missing file:

For production deployments I try to download and use local copies of those .cfg files. In theory they shouldn't ever go away but you never know, especially if the files in question are not in our (Plone community's) control.

Also buildout extends-cache option is a nice thing to use...

Anyway the url is working now :smile:

Ah thanks - I did not know about that buildout option.

(may not be the version of zc.buildout that we use, but still good to know)

You have it also in the latest buildout version:
