This issue has been around for quite a while.

It would really be nice if someone could poke the right person to get this fixed before version 1.0.  Many newbies will probably bonk into this when following the Grok how-to's.

I guess there is resistance to fixing it because it is such a huge library and should be refactored.  Unfortunately, I have neither the expertise, time, or Zope repository access to tackle this right now.

You will probably have to work around it by adding 
find-links = http://download.zope.org/distribution/
to your buildout.
