Hi Yuppie. I use CMF only and already have my own main_template,
templates, portlets, etc. This is good but the initiative I want to take
has more to do with something more modern and new that would also
involve the evolving AJAX framework that will be included in the Z3ECM.
I'll spend a bit of time with this to see what it will need but like I
say, when it comes to the bridge itself, I will likely need help. Like
Yens has indicated, this would likely mean an add on product but I feel
it is one of the only viable solutions to move into total Z3 views and
Z3 portlets together with CMF. But also something very nice.

Hi Yuppie. Is there some interest in having CPSSkins V3 work together
with CMF in the new release? The CMF on its own is still very nice
framework but it would be nice if it was usable with a new skin.
CPSSkins V3 is ZPL. The old default templates are really not pretty
but CPSSkins could give CMF on its own a new life don't you think?
The out of the box appearance of CMFDefault isn't sexy at all, but if
you replace main_template and the stylesheet with your own versions it
doesn't look that bad.
What it is missing is a Five bridge. Is this something that we could
make happen. I am willing to help (but my ZCML knowledge is not
particularly great at this stage). I am not sure when the final CMF
2.0.0 but it would be a real milestone if we could give CMF a new
exterior for it's debut as 2.0.
I'm afraid you need a bit more patience. There are many things I'm
missing in CMF 2.0, but CMF 2.0 will not be the last CMF release.
If someone figures out what's necessary to use CPSSkins V3 with
CMFDefault we might be able to add the necessary hooks in CMF.
