easy_install lets me specify an egg from svn, e.g.:

Hm, interesting.  I thought I had seen something like that, but I've
never been able to find documentation for it.  Do you know where this
is documented?  Does this example actually work?

I have a zc.buildout recipie that specifies a number of eggs that should always be fetched from svn.

I wonder what that should mean.

Is there some way of specifying such eggs, e.g.

parts = ...

eggs =

Of course, that doesn't work :)

I suppose this is somewhat similar to develop-eggs, but (as far as I know) these have to be in the src/ directory, and can't be fetched from svn and kept up to date automatically. We currently do this with svn externals to fetch them into src/ but I'd like to be able to distribute a standalone buildout.cfg that could get these eggs.

I agree that something like this would be useful.  I would like to
see the semantics spelled out.  For example, I agree that this should
lead to a develop egg.  What version should it have? Should that
be determined by the remote file?  Is the project you point
to required to have a file?  If so, then why specify a
project name after the #.
