Having a clean system python helps a lot.

zc_buildout_dev py_254_win32
zc_buildout_dev py_265_win32
zc_buildout_dev py_270_win32
are all GREEN

zc_buildout_dev py_244_win32
zc_buildout_dev py_265_win64
zc_buildout_dev py_270_win64
have 1-1 failures.

I'll let the winbot now send mails about status to zope-test at zope.org
