It's a limitation of buildout, perhaps. It is possible to use setuptools with multiple indexes: 'compoze' allows spelling multiple '-index-url' items on the command line. E.g.:: $ bin/compoze fetch --index-url=http://download.zope.org/zope3.4 \ --index-url=http://dist.repoze.org/simple \ zope.interface With 'easy_install', you can only specify one '--index-url' per command, but you can change it each time you run 'easy_install. > In buildout I can > only specify one index, since setuptools can have only one index. Not so.
