Where are the eggs, btw?

This doesn't surprise me. After all, you just tarred up the SVN export.
zpkg actually only tars up what is explicitly selected to be released.
Your tarball contains a few things that haven't been in Zope 2.9.x
releases before, e.g.:

  - zope.app.boston
  - zope.app.catalog
  - zope.app.css
  - zope.app.dav
  - zope.app.debugskin
  - zope.app.demo
  - zope.app.fssync
  - zope.app.homefolder
  - zope.app.i18nfile
  - zope.app.interpreter
  - zope.app.locking
  - zope.app.module
  - zope.app.observable
  - zope.app.pluggableauth
  - zope.app.presentation
  - zope.app.pythonpage
  - zope.app.recorder
  - zope.app.schemacontent
  - zope.app.securitypolicy
  - zope.app.server
  - zope.app.sqlexpr
  - zope.app.styleguide
  - zope.app.twisted
  - zope.app.versioncontrol
  - zope.app.wfmc
  - zope.app.winservice
  - zope.app.workflow
  - zope.app.zopetop

Most of these

a) have either never released even in Zope 3 (this is the majority),

b) are sample things (like css, styleguide, demo, etc.) that are (for
the most part) bitrotting in zope.app

c) are so much core to Zope 3 that they don't make sense in Zope 2 (such
as twisted, securitypolicy)

While b) and c) might not do much harm, the fact that things in a) *are*
released now *does* make a new feature. Even worse, most of the things
in category a) *should not* be release because they're considered broken
or unstable. I agree that zope.app is horribly trashed with junk that
doesn't belong in there (probably doesn't even belong inside the Zope 3
tree), but that's how it is right now. Just dumping it in a tarball
isn't the way to go...

If it had been that trivial to NOT use zpkg back then, I certainly
wouldn't have considered it at all...
