[Zope3-Users] zc.buildout and unreleased eggs in svn

easy_install lets me specify an egg from svn, e.g.:

  $ easy_install 

I have a zc.buildout recipie that specifies a number of eggs that should 
always be fetched from svn. These are not (yet) in the cheeseshop.

Is there some way of specifying such eggs, e.g.

parts = ...

eggs =

Of course, that doesn't work :)

I suppose this is somewhat similar to develop-eggs, but (as far as I 
know) these have to be in the src/ directory, and can't be fetched from 
svn and kept up to date automatically. We currently do this with svn 
externals to fetch them into src/ but I'd like to be able to distribute 
a standalone buildout.cfg that could get these eggs.
