No you're not right here. With buildout, when you are using the develop clause, it create a link in the develop-eggs dir and if look inside the new file it would point to your package directory directly.
After that you can install the egg in the "eggs' section and use it directly as it would be installed from pypi.
is it working correctly ?
I understand what is the meaning of the develop clause and that I should end up with the mymodule.egg-link in the develop-eggs directory
Problem is only that I don't manage to install this egg. In the buildout.cfg, I tried to install it but nothing happen (no error message, nothing).
I was expecting that: 1) the buildout.cfg I gave would trigger the installation of this egg 2) After installation of this egg, I would have mymodule.egg-link in the site-packages directory.
But it seems that it's not at all the expected behavior ?
