Thank you!

Great, thanks!

The 'docs' and 'dev' aliases are defined in setup.cfg::

 $ tail -n -3 setup.cfg
 dev = develop easy_install zope.interface[testing]
 docs = easy_install zope.interface[docs]

and their extras_require in setup.py::

 $ egrep -B 2 "(testing_extras|'docs')" setup.py
         features = {'codeoptimization': codeoptimization}
     tests_require = ['zope.event']
     testing_extras = tests_require + ['nose', 'coverage']
         tests_require = tests_require,
         install_requires = ['setuptools'],
         extras_require={'docs': ['Sphinx'],
                         'test': tests_require,
                         'testing': testing_extras,
