zope.kgs is the software and zope.release is the management of the Zope 3 KGS. 
So a Grok KGS would use zope.kgs but not zope.release.

I have been bothered by this before, but not enough to fix it. Basically, It 
could easily be one step.

The two steps stem from the fact that you have a KGS file from which you 
produce all sorts of interesting artifacts. The test setup is one such 
artifact. you then use the artifact. Of course, for convenience one step would 
be fine. Maybe it is even a PITA in zope.release.
