do you have any examples how to use zc.sourcerelease for that purpose? i see that this is the right utility, but i fail to understand how it works up to now. the whole buildout stuff is fairly new to me. it would be great if you had an example script with zc.sourcerelease which creates a source tarball for zope2.12. if i got it right i need buildout.cfg for zc.sourcerelease which describes how to create the tarball. and then i need a second buildout.cfg for zope2.12 which describes how to actually build zope2.12 from the sources that zc.sourcerelease put together, right? greetings, and thanks in advance, jonas
