and why does buildout pick it over a stable release?Because buildout, like easy_install, will pick the newest available version for a distribution. Fortunately, buildout has a prefer-stable option so that you can tell it to prefer stable over alpha/beta/dev releases. Also, in any serious situtation you'd want to pin your versions, e.g. using the KGS  or a manual list.Uploading non-releases like this to public index locations has *got* to stop. Frankly, they should all be removed: anybody who is depending on them needs to run their own index.
+oo Package sanity and package hygiene is the most important issue of PyPI right now. PyPI requires a strong policy in order to keep PypI possible:no uploading of development releases, no uploading for packages without a minimum set of metadata. PyPI has become a data toilet - unfortunately it is often hard to convinced people that their package uploads without metadata are crap.
