What is the motivation to include non-controlled packages? I suppose it
is to let people use those packages with (in this case) Zope 3.4. What
if someone wants Zope 3.4 and Twisted version X and Plone version Y
(just making those up). Perhaps we need a way to refer to several KGS
when constructing an application. Or is one KGS supposed to define a
"universe" of packages known to work together. If so, I would think
there would be no place for non-controlled packages.
A feature to combine lists of versions is definitely needed. I may be a
developer of an application that uses both Grok and KSS, for instance.
This can be solved by me maintaining my own list, but I'd prefer to rely
on two lists that are already there.
That's the application developer's case. The framework developer's case
requires me to publish such combined lists. If I have my own framework
on top of Grok and KSS, I'd like to publish a list that's a combination
of those without having to copy them.
