From: Paul Everitt [EMAIL PROTECTED] I agree with Andy. Zope is a tool. Things like Silva and Plone are products. The purpose of Zope is to allow people to build things like Silva or Plone, or things quite different (perhaps custom to their own needs) quickly. And frankly, tools don't

Hi Ropas-Zopas, Just my 2 cents. I like plone and everything, but should'nt even the plone developers be working on improving and making ZPT faster? Seems to me in their rush to make this Plone product, they say they will make it compatible and faster, but I'm appalled, Yes I said it :-)
