This is a bit misleading, the errors occured when installing the
packages outside of grokproject, that is easy_install would just install
the newest dependency files available.

The real problem was that zope.app.testing could not be extracted from
the tarball. See your last posting...

   File "c:\python25\Lib\gzip.py", line 279, in _read
     uncompress = self.decompress.decompress(buf)
zlib.error: Error -3 while decompressing: invalid literal/lengths set
An error occured when trying to install zope.app.testing 3.4.3.
