[Setup] Installing ZMySQLDA in Plone 3.1.3 with Buildout

I tried to install an old-style product ZMySQLDA with Buildout as following

I have :
 - added MySQL-Python egg which is needed by ZMySQLDA in the egg list of the
buildout section
 - added the URL of the ZMySQLDA archive in the productdistros section



 eggs =

recipe = plone.recipe.distros
urls =


nested-packages =
version-suffix-packages =

I have executed ./bin/buildout -N

No problem with MySQL-Python but ZMySQLDA has been installed in
zinstance/parts/productdistros/lib/python/Products/ZMySQLDA/ and it was not
working in Zope (My Z MySQL Database Connection was broken)

I found a "woraround" that is adding a zmysqlda section :

recipe = cns.recipe.zmysqlda

Thus ZMySQLDA is installed in zinstance/products and it works.

But is it the right way of doing ? Why simply adding the archive URL does
not work ?

If I execute "find . -name "Products" -print", I have the following
directories :


to which I must add ./zinstance/products :confused:

What should go where ?
