+1 If one of several packages doesn't get updated with buildout is only possible if someone uses an index server which only have one of the both released packages available. If this is not true, then this is a bug in buildout and buildout doesn't catch the package versions correct. Which I think is not the case. All other reason I can think about that someone only got one package and another not if two package get released depends on a bad package management. Fix versions are a pain because you can't be sure that someone uses a patched or branched package which you will fix the version for. Package management should never be done in a single package! Michael, can you explain what's happen that you didn't got the zope.publisher release? And was this problem solved after fixing the version or did you do something else too?
