I'm surprised. It certainly didn't for me and I don't see how it could 
for anyone else.

Not a very clear bug report...

There's always a few odd people out there ;-)

When the new docs go live, you'll see things have changed...

I still don't really understand the use case here. My guess would be 
that if you want to work with a trunk checkout of CMF, all you need to 
do is at that src path to the "develop" line in the [buildout] section.

I don't see how the stuff you're describing would be any less clumsy 
using a classic instance...
