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

% svn cat svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/zc.buildout/trunk/bootstrap/bootstrap.py > bootstrap.py

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


System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 22)

Inconsistent literal block quoting.

parts = ... bootstrap

[bootstrap] recipe = collective.recipe.bootstrap

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