Bug Description

Very simple:

# Reportlab
This comment is treated as a comment.
This is not, and causes an error when it is searching for
eggs it is not supposed to be looking for.

I have not messed with having comments after an entry
so don't know if this works properly
        Reportlab #newly added
but it should.

This is a limitation of the ConfigParser format and can't be changed without causing backward-compatibility problems.

It would make sense to add a section to the documentation to clearly define how comments can be made.

Changed in zc.buildout:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed
