it's a development and release process matter.

Most people have two .cfg files :

- one for development (dev.cfg)
- one for production (prod.cfg) where you don't leave any develop
option of course.

You can also have another cfg for your developments, that points to
the released versions of the third party packages if needed
in your development process.

And all those cfg extends buildout.cfg.
