Second, I am MYSTIFIED (there's no better word) that DC is in such a rush to REQUIRE the use of Python 2.1 for Zope 2.4, when we're still waiting for Py 2.1 final to even come out. Why put all your eggs in that basket, and why force the community to choose between changing to a bleeding-edge

If what Albert says is true, then Zope 2.4 should REQUIRE Py 2.0 and SUPPORT Py 2.1, not REQUIRE Py 2.1. --On Saturday, April 14, 2001 1:14 AM +1000 Albert Langer [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: The *big* leap is from 1.5.2 to 2.0 which has been out for quite a while. I18N is *desperately* needed
