Installing z3ext CMS was very easy.  I have few suggestions.

 1. I think your CMS application can be renamed to something else.
     Instead of using 'z3ext.portal' as the main entry point, a 
package would be better. (z3extcms, z3extportal or something like that).
2. There is a new version of bootstrap.py inside buidout source tree.
3. A basic tutorial about how to use this CMS would be great.
