These are all questions originating from my limited experience with  
zope3 and zero experience with development: ...
I did run the demos and was most impressed. During the download phase  
all of the z3c and zc packages listed as includes in site.zcml had to  
be downloaded as well as plenty of updates of my zope 3.3.0  
installation. For example there were many many cycles like this:

zc.buildout.easy_install: Getting new distribution for zope.i18n
zc.buildout.easy_install: Got zope.i18n 3.4.0a1

Previously I had no zc, z3c packages installed.
How do I make these new or updated packages available via my regular  
Zope 3 instances? Is that a legit thing to do?Is it just a matter of  
including the demo in PYTHONPATH? How do you folks at the sharp end  
of zope development tie in the old with the new?
I realise that I don't understand  the relationship between zc, z3c  
and zope3?  Am I correct to assume that zc & z3c are packages under  
development that will eventually migrate to zope 3 ? That zope 3.3.1  
(which I don't have) might have included most of the new zope  
distributions I downloaded as well as some others of the z3c kind  
renamed to zope?? Is that the way it works?
Would appreciate enlightenment.
