I just updated the Zope 3.4 KGS with some new features.

1. You only need to upload the "controlled-packages.cfg" file now; all other files are generated.

2. The "controlled-packages.cfg" file now supports a name and version option. Thus, all generated files are versioned now. The unversioned version of the files refers to the latest one.

3. A new "links.html" file now lists all packages in one URL, so that it is suitable for the "find-links" option. (I have not tested this yet, anyone?)

That's quite useful when combining multiple KGSs

4. A new "minimal/" folder now contains an index just of the controlled packages. This minimal index can be used by compoze as one contributing index. (I have not tested this yet, can anyone try this and report how it can be done?)

5. There is now an introduction page called "intro.html" that lists all versions and files. It also explains how to use the files. See:
http://download.zope.org/zope3.4/intro.html

You have a typo there. The buildout option is called "extends", not "extend".

6. The KGS now supports extensions, meaning one KGS can build on another. You simply specify the "extend" option in the "[KGS]" section of the controlled packages configuration file. This should allow frameworks built on top of Zoep 3, like grok, to build their own KGS without much effort.

That said, I would really like for people to test all the features and see whether they work for them.

But most importantly, I would like for people to contribute to the "Usage" section of the introduction page!
