HI Chris

Sounds like a plan

I will start a repoze.bfg.gae

My bindings for pagetemplate are pretty much the same, but I have a
higher level
wrapper that is doing some extra stuff for macros etc....

So I may leave that zpt wrapper repoze.bfg.gae as I plan to do some
template caching that is suitable for gae etc.... along with gae
specific instructions for using pagetemplates

One thing to note for people planing to use zope.pagetemplates in gae
is that it does
have a dependancy on i18nmessageid which has some 'c' code , you need
to remove the
_zope_i18nmessageid_message.py as the standard bootstrap code for the c lib
causes gae to barf as it is using some python capabilities that aren't in gae

I will also include a cut down zope.proxy in repoze.bfg.gae so if
people wan't to use
zope.deferredimport (because some other zope3 stuff uses it) than can
copy it up and use that

Will sign the agreement later today

See ya
