I'd be surprised. Such directives and Dutch laws are usually
quite technology independent these days, are they not?

Again, I'd be surprised when you really need knowledge of ZODB's
internals to evaluate a legal issue. Programmers don't even need
that knowledge to persist their data.

Translating technical restrictions to a legal roadmap... what
does that mean?

>Is this the right forum to drop these questions?

Perhaps you can be somewhat more specific and give some examples
of questions you have. If it's about application programming
instead of ZODB's internals, you may be better off in

And for legal questions I recommend news:nl.juridisch :-)
