Looks like the build broke for 2.5 only last night, hence the lack of eggs.
I'll get this fixed for tonight's build.

Yep, definitely. We'll be continuing to distribute 2.4 and 2.5 eggs for the
forseeable future (and 2.6 eventually, once I get another buildbot instance
going somewhere).

If you're using setup.py in one, you should use it in the other, and not
rely on svn:externals. To build your own nightly, you can run:

sudo python setup.py install nightly

This will tag the version with the date stamp.

I actually use Git-SVN for development and use a symlink to a checked out
Djblets, rather than svn:externals. But the prinicipal is the same. I don't
rely on installing eggs unless there's something I explicitly need to test.

Djblets won't be an svn:external much longer, nor will django_evolution. Now
that people aren't running directly out of an SVN checkout anymore (or
shouldn't be) there's little reason to continue with this route. I would say
for developers, either just develop out of the tree, use devserver.sh for
testing, and use symlinks/svn:externals for the dependencies, -or- use eggs
and install with the "install nightly" alias or "develop" (not sure if you
need to do "develop nightly" -- I honestly don't use develop for this).
