A CMF 1.6 release that requires Zope 2.8 and essentially bundles CMF

Yes, that's a good idea. It certainly can't go directly in the
strictly-maintenance 1.5 branch. +1 from me for 1.6 then.
great... it seems we're all in consensus for a 1.6.
Rob, without wanting to open a Pandora's box, is Generic Setup the only
thing you're really craving or are there other low-hanging fruit that
could be dealt with *without* moving too far off the 1.5 code base?
GenericSetup is the important one. i could come up w/ more, sure, but
since Plone is moving to a time-based release schedule, and the proposal
and feature freeze is coming very soon (dec 1) i don't think there's
really time for us to tackle anything else.
what is the timeframe for Plone 2.2 (I assume that's the release you
want this for)?
Plone may change its numbering convention soon, but yes, i'm talking
about the next non-2.1-maintenance release, which we'll call 2.2 for now.
the time frame is that there is a proposal/feature freeze scheduled for
dec 1; by that time, any new features that are going to land have to be
implemented in review bundle so the framework team can assess whether or
not it's gonna work. actual release dates are still tentative, but
we're looking at an initial alpha around dec 20, a beta in mid-feb, and
release candidates leading to a release in mid march.
GenericSetup is still a moving target. I would not create a branch
for 1.6 before 2.0 has stabilized.
unfortunately i need to move rather quickly to be able to produce a
proof-of-concept for the framework team to review. i may need to cut a
branch and then just accept that i'll have to keep up w/ GenericSetup
for a bit. do we know how much change is likely to happen, and in what
Stabilized meaning moved from alpha to beta or the final? I'm trying to
see how far the different schedules (Plone 2.2 and a stabilized
GenericSetup) can be made to match up.
that would be great! hope the info i gave helps.
