Sure. The grokproject update (in trunk) will happen today or tomorrow,
depending on what difficulties appear :-)

A new grokproject _release_ is a different topic: currently generated
projects (generated by grokproject-trunk) are not compatible with
existing grok releases (but only with the unreleased grok trunk), mainly
because of the new grok.View security declaration. In current
(unreleased) grokproject paster site.zcml template we define::

  <grant permission="grok.View"
         principal="zope.Anybody" />

Here we use a permission only available with newer grokcore.security and
not part of older grok-eggbaskets up to grok-1.0a4.

I think we need a solution for this before a release. If we would
release grokproject right now, no one could create working projects with
