Good question.

Well most python developers will tell you that just about any of your favorite text editors would do, I've personally tried both of these, but still am not completely happy with either of them.

Komodo IDE: Good all-around IDE (Can be used with just about any scripting language). The python support is decent, but the Intellisense is kind of klunky. Especially when it behaves a lot like file-name completion does in the MS Windows command prompt (Pressing Ctrl + Space gives you the first match, pressing it again gives you the next match and so on). Overall it's responsive and behaves well.

Wingware IDE: Wingware offers inbuilt debugging support for zope (and hence and is more of a natural choice. It is unique in this - it offers a server side component that runs on a different port than your regular zope and hooks up with the IDE to give great support. Also the Intellisense is much better. That said, it *feels* a lot more complicated than it should, especially when you begin.

On the whole, I'd say evaluate both of the above, and take your pick. I personally like Komodo better because of the way it highlights the tab indentation levels with a thin grey line (tab indentation is pretty much the only thing that you must know to begin, in python), but your mileage may vary.

We welcome all developers to the project. If you're looking to customize for your own needs I'll try to be available to your questions - just please try and post each question in a new separate thread - that way it's easier to track for everybody.

We're looking for developers who are interested in contributing to - do tell us about what your skills are and how/if you'd like to contribute if you're interested. There are several projects ongoing at the moment around, and we can use all the fingers (and more importantly, minds) we can get.
