I think the KGS should define 3 categories of packages:

- ZTK packages

   These are packages we maintain and expect people to build things on.

- Test packages

    These are packages that build on the ZTK. These are used to test  
the ZTK packages, but aren't part
    of the ZTK.

- dependencies of ZTK packages or test packages.

   Note that the ZTK should probably avoid non-third-party  
dependencies that are not
   part of the ZTK. There are some fuzzy cases, like ZODB and ZConfig.

I propose that any test infrastructure we come up with needs to handle  
these 3 cases.  In any cases, the test infrastructure needs to fix  
version for all of the categories of packages and there needs to be a  
formal process (uh, like tests passing :) for updating the
