Some tips with buildout that work for me.

Create ~/.buildout/default.cfg::

develop-eggs-directory=/path/to/develop-eggs #optional

Of course choose your own egg directories. Then run the buildout as in
original post. This will take an awfully long time. The next time you
install another zope 3 app from buildout, it will use the same eggs

./bin/buildout -N

The -N means that it won't look for newer eggs if the local egg
satisfies requirements. And it will take no time at all.

As to the version - I have no idea how that works with the egg
distribution of separate packages.

Hope this helps.
