Local Egg not showing up in available addon-ons list

Issue:
I have used a vagrant setup to build a Plone5.3 system with Python3.7
I have followed Chapter 16-17 of Mastering Plone to create a new addon to create a new dexterity content type called bulletinViewer.site
When I run bin/instance fg and go to a new site then to Admin | Site Setup | General | Addons | I do not see the addon bulletinViewer.site

The Following are the steps I took:
buildout.cfg

[buildout]
extends =
    http://dist.plone.org/release/5.2/versions.cfg
    versions.cfg
extends-cache = extends-cache

extensions = mr.developer
# Tell mr.developer to ask before updating a checkout.
always-checkout = true
show-picked-versions = true
sources = sources

# The directory this buildout is in. Modified when using vagrant.
buildout_dir = ${buildout:directory}

# We want to checkouts these eggs directly from github
auto-checkout =
    ploneconf.site
    bulletinViewer.site
#    starzel.votable_behavior

I know I am missing something so my very dear plone community send me your wisdom! Or ask me to clarify anything at all.

P.S. I have no error messages (which is the worst)

Can you post your configure.zcml (did you add the profiles to it ?).

You could try to add some code that generates an error in you add-on. If you dont get an error, something is misconfigured

@espenmn
configure.zcml

<configure
    xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope"
    xmlns:genericsetup="http://namespaces.zope.org/genericsetup"
    xmlns:i18n="http://namespaces.zope.org/i18n"
    xmlns:plone="http://namespaces.plone.org/plone"
    i18n_domain="bulletinViewer.site">

  <i18n:registerTranslations directory="locales" />

  <!--
    Be careful if you use general includeDependencies, it can have sideffects!

  <!--<includeDependencies package="." />-->

  <include package=".browser" />

  <include file="upgrades.zcml" />

  <genericsetup:registerProfile

      provides="Products.GenericSetup.interfaces.EXTENSION"
      post_handler=".setuphandlers.post_install"
      />

  <genericsetup:registerProfile

      directory="profiles/uninstall"
      description="Uninstalls the bulletinViewer.site add-on."
      provides="Products.GenericSetup.interfaces.EXTENSION"
      post_handler=".setuphandlers.uninstall"
      />

  <utility
      factory=".setuphandlers.HiddenProfiles"
      name="bulletinViewer.site-hiddenprofiles"
      />

  <!-- -*- extra stuff goes here -*- -->

</configure>

I think everything looks OK.
Does you buildout run without any errors/messages ?

For your info: you dont HAVE to add you local add-ons to auto-checkout and sources, you can just include the path to src.

In other words, your should have a line in buildout.cfg

develop = /path/to/bulletinViewer.site
