You mean some URL, like grok.zope.org/releaseinfo/... ?

grokproject indeed fetches the latest versions.cfg from grok.zope.org.
But it adds some stuff not needed with stock grok or only with special
grok instances, the eggbasket recipe version for instance, or the paster
eggs. This makes grokproject more independent from Grok releases,
because you do not have to wait for a new Grok (and accompanied
versions.cfg) if you want a new eggbasket recipe to be used. Beside
this, I fully agree.

Best regards,
