Hmmmmm, okay.  I'll be a bit sarcastic here.  But it isn't meant to be
flamming or mean.  It is meant to be instructive.  From the website:

Upgrading to 1.0a4
      * There're no additional instructions for upgrading from 1.0a3 to

The last real upgrade instructions were from 0.14 to 1.0a1.

So (if I'm a new user and do not watch the mailing list/irc channel)
there is no difference between using 1.0a1 and 1.0a4.  So I have to ask
myself; what's the point?

Now, in reality I know that 1.0a3 had a broken versions.cfg, correct?
Or was that really the problem.....hmmm, I do monitor the mailing list
and am occasionally on IRC and even I'm not exactly certain.

So I have a project on my machine and I want to upgrade to 1.0a4 from
1.0a3  According to the instructions; I do nothing.  I guess it just
HAPPENS AUTOMAGICALLY (damn I knew Martian was cool but this is

But without the sarcasm, I think I need to replace my versions.cfg wiith
the new one and maybe edit my setup.py?

Then run python bootstrap and then bin/buildout.

Is this correct?  Something more / something less?
