Well, I just tried to create the error, but could not, which is good I  
guess.  Earlier I got this traceback following the tutorial:

ngift at Macintosh-6][H:10491][J:0]> bin/grokproject Sample
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "bin/grokproject", line 5, in <module>
     from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/pkg_resources.py", line 2561, in
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/pkg_resources.py", line 626, in
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/pkg_resources.py", line 524, in
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: PasteScript>=1.3

I was using virtualenv and the setuptools installation inside of it.   
It looks like from the traceback that the PasteScript couldn't be  
found.  I was on Leopard which has an assortment of weird Python  
issues, so it is possible it was a Leopard issue.  I am still a little  
new to the buildout/virtualenv combo, so I might be missing something  
subtle.  If someone else tests this on Leopard than it could be ruled

This is just a guess from the traceback I got.  I then manually  
installed PasteScript and I believe Paster, and I was then able to  
create a project.
