A few random thoughts:

* I like the idea of some support scripts and tool surrounding the release *and* 
to make the grokproject tool a bit more intelligent about retrieving version 
information and putting it into the newly created project.


* There's the "extends cache" option in buildout that we could encourage (like 
grokproject encourages to have a ~/.buildout/default.cfg). If this option works 
reliably, we could actually do less than we do now, as all extends reference can 
be left in place as the information is cached for offline use. In other words, 
the newly created project's buildout could "just" extend the grok.cfg and 
ztk.cfg and zopeapp.cfg...

Just some thoughts :-)
