  Sounds good. However you should not change file in the profiles
  directory. Those should stay at the SVN version.

  It's better just to add this to your buildout.cfg:

  setuptools = 0.6c9

  If you do that changes on your documentation, I will add links to
  them from the docs.infrae.com website.
