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. > Why does zope.release have a 2-step build process?

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.
