I'm about to make a new release of zc.buildout that uses a different policy for selecting distributions. In particular, by default, zc.buildout will now prefer final distributions over non-final ones. If there are final and non-final distributions that satisfy a requirement, buildout will, by default, select a final distribution even if there are non-final distributions that satisfy a requirement.

This release will cause many existing buildouts to use older distributions than they do now.

You can change this behavior by providing a prefer-final buildout option:

   prefer-final = false

How will this be versioned?

It'd be helpful if it were a different major (or at least minor) version than the current one, to make it easier for people to stick with a version that has the policy they normally use.

Other than that, +1 for this policy change.
