[Grok-dev] buildout: how to include grok-dev?

Hi there,

I am currently trying to separate the admin-UI from grok, putting it
into a separate package/egg.

The package will have its own buildout and will depend on grok.

Due to I am not too familiar with buildout, I am looking for the correct
way to include a devel-version of grok - at least for testing - into the
grokadmin buildout.

I could build everything matching the 0.10 version, but that does not
make sense to me, because the 0.10 version is out and does not support
an external grokadmin package. Furthermore I would like to make use of
new features like the modified permissions mechanism.

How can I tell buildout to fetch a developer version of grok (and the
approriate eggs)? I hope it is possible to do that in a way, so that
people, that check out grokadmin, will get the right packages when doing
bin/buildout on the grokadmin package.

Sorry, if this is a dumb question.

Kind regards,
