This tar ball is a python egg, even though it ends with '.tar.gz' and
not with '.egg'.  So  what you do is, you add 'Products.LinguaPlone'
to the eggs parameter of your buildout.  So near the top you would
have something like:

(... skipped some lines...)
eggs =

Since it is in the 'Products' namespace this is all you have to do.
Run bin/buildout again and you should be good to go.

BTW, the workaround you mentioned in your second post should work too,
but it is not recommended as it needs a manual step.
