First of all, if this is not the correct list to send this kind of information 
to, please forgive me and i'd be very appreciative if you could let me know the 
one i should post this on.

I'm with Scality, developer of an object-based storage software platform, 
called Scality RING. A month ago, at SNIA's Software Developer Conference, we 
announced our Open-Source program, SCOP, the immediate release of our first 
open-source library, Scality Droplet, and the launch of a bounty program 
offering contributing developers grants from a $100,000 fund. More information 
on http://scop.scality.com/

One of the bounties we have designed concerns the development of a Zope/Plone 
interface to an object storage platform. We thought about introducing it 
directly to the Zope community of developers to get feedback and comments as 
well as possible submissions for the bounty program ;)
The ZODB model seems to fit particularly well with an underlying object based 
storage in place of traditional file system storage.  The key feature of the 
bounty development would be the full replacement of the file system storage  of 
content/objects with object storage, using the REST interface of the Scality 
Droplet library. The objective is not to replace Zope or ZODB, but to enable 
cloud storage of objects via Zope. Slowing down Zope is obviously not an 
objective either, the integration should allow scaling up to very large 
collections of data without hurting performance.

For more information on the bounty, please have a look at http://bit.ly/b17DL3
You can register for the bounty on the site as well at this address: 

And please feel free to drop us an email at dr...@scality.com if you have more 
questions, or to continue the discussion on this mailing list. We are obviously 
welcoming comments of any kind on our initiative.

Hoping to spark some interest in some of you guys, I wish you a great day/night 
depending on your timezone.
