Typo.  That should be:

Thanks for your work!

Works fine on the standard buildout template I use for all clients, on 
Mac OS X Mountain Lion.

It is incompatible with the buildout-versions extension, but that is not 
really buildout's problem.  If this looks like a general problem that 
extensions or recipes could run into, it may warrant an update in the 
docs, or at least the changelog.  The error I get is this:

$ bin/buildout
   Loading extensions.

An internal error occurred due to a bug in either zc.buildout or in a
recipe being used:
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 1866, in main
     getattr(buildout, command)(args)
line 466, in install
line 1037, in _load_extensions
line 2013, in load

     from zc.buildout.easy_install import IncompatibleVersionError
ImportError: cannot import name IncompatibleVersionError
