Problem with buildout/backend with plone-react

Hey there,
I am installing a plone backend instance with plone-react. It was working fine earlier but After we upgraded to newer versions, I am getting this error:

Generated script '/home/nilesh/Desktop/plone-react/api/bin/develop'.
Installing instance.
  Installing instance.

An internal error occurred due to a bug in either zc.buildout or in a
recipe being used:
Traceback (most recent call last):

I have the same issue, which branch should we use to test?

The branch no longer exists:
Should use master instead, but i think it's not stable though.

Take a look at TypeError: 'Version' object has no attribute '__getitem__' .
Either pin plone.recipe.zope2instance = 4.4.0 or setuptools = 38.7.0 in the buildout.cfg of the backend.

@nileshgulia1 FYI: I fixed the issue on the master branch of plone-react:
