Ok, what I will do:

1) release Grok 1.1rc1
2) update the groktoolkit to refer to this 1.1rc1
3) release the groktoolkit as 1.1rc1 as well
4) upload the grok.cfg from the groktoolkit to

Important remark:

The grokproject tool download the releaseinfo/grok-1.1rc1.cfg file into the 
newly created project as a versions.cfg file to support offline building.

The grok.cfg in the groktoolkit extends the ztk.cfg in the zopetoolkit and if we 
upload it to releaseinfo/grok-1.1rc.cfg without modifications, we will break the 
offline building possbility, since the downloaded file will still extend the 
ztk.cfg file.

In other words, I think the grok.cfg file in a groktoolkit _release_ needs to 
include the versions of the zopetoolkit and not extend the ztk.cfg.

This will be a extra step in the release proces. When doing the release I'll 
change the release notes accordingly.
