Yes. This was suggested by the Zope 2 release manager, Andreas Jung, two
course, other people are still welcome to backport fixes to the 2.8
branch and make releases themselves, but I suspect neither Andreas nor
the Zope 2 developers will have the bandwidth to maintain more than
three concurrent branches (Zope 2.9, Zope 2.10 and the trunk at that time).

I think one year is a pretty big span. Today, for example, you would not
start a project on Zope 2.8. You would do it with Zope 2.9 which is
going to get bugfixes until the end of 2006.
