Ah, okay, good reason to use the trunk :-)

In this case (where you don't want to make changes to the grok code),
the following might work without extra checkouts in your projectdir:

Give buildout.cfg an additional source, where it can find the trunk and
require a development version of grok. Note the additional `find-links`
entry and the additional versions section::

   develop = .
   parts = app data zopectl i18n test
   find-links = http://download.zope.org/distribution/         

   grok = 0.11dev


This worked for me and fetched the current trunk as a development egg.
Other instances/projects were not touched by this IIRC. 

Don't know, however, whether it is a legal approach. Also `grok = dev`
in the `versions` section worked here, with some warning messages I

The credits go to Philipp! He posted this approach about one week ago
here on the list ;-)

Hope that helps,
