Because most buildouts specifically point to download.zope.org using
find-links (so that way the necessary egg that's missing from PyPI is
found), or they pin down the version of zope.traversing.
They don't anymore. I removed the find-links in all the packages I
while creating Zope 3.4.0b2, because distribution contains so many
packages and would have overridden several of the KGS package
So what makes this stuff work via buildout is all version-pinning
now? Assuming you agree that packages released to the cheeseshop
should be installable via easy_install, if distribution dependencies
are version-pinned in a distribution's buildout.cfg, the same pin
should be done in the setup.py install_requires= for that
distribution. Otherwise running easy_install will never have the same
result as running buildout when it comes to fetching dependencies for
a particular distribution. In general, buildout.cfg and setup.py
should share all dependency information, or the version-pin in
buildout.cfg should disappear.
