Searching for "Products" at PyPi results in a longer list. So I think  
a namespace is already present.

There is a directive in zope.conf to add additional directories to  
the products namespace.

To add downloaded eggs to an instance one can set them in the  
PYTHONPATH environment variable. Buildout does it in the "./bin/ 

These are only hints, because I also have severe difficulties to put  
all these things together. One point I do not understand is, how to  
build eggs from src checkouts in one buildout for zope2 without  
downloading all dependencies as eggs (which are also part of the main  
zope install)

Is there actually a list, where buildout questions can be asked?

With regards,
