disconnect between online install instructions and comment in default buildout.cfg

In the sample offered in the default buildout.cfg provided with the unified installer, there is the line:

#    Products.PloneFormGen==1.6.0

implying that we should pin pfg to that version.

yet on the installation instruction on pypi there is no such instruction. Furthermore, since pypi has pfg 1.7rc1 I am going to assume that it is production ready and we don't need to pin anything. Thus, in my buildout I will just put the following in my eggs section:

Products.PloneFormGen 

and not worry about version pins.

But I am worried about version pins. I am wondering if perhaps version pinning could/should be done through goodpy like it is done with dexterity and diazo?

Hi David,

On a production site I would still recommend pinning all of your
versions, just in case a future version of some product might introduce
some kind of incompatibility.

My 2 cents,
