IMHO the release cycle argument doesn't wash. We've always had CMF  
releases in preparation for important Plone releases, and I'm happy to  
continue that.

Thanks, I appreciate that.

Generally, I think now that the ZF has cleared up the remaining issues  
about code ownership etc. we finally have two entities, the ZF and the  
Plone Foundation, that are the perfect platform for "official" issues  
like code donations, or for coordinating other cooperation issues. I  
can't judge how the Plone Foundation acts within the Plone community,  
but as far as the Zope Foundation goes, Martijn has been doing a lot  
of work to make it more relevant and an important player in the actual  
software development process.

Is there any kind of low-traffic announcement list for things like  
PLIPs? I'm not subscribed to any Plone list because of (for me at  
least) signal to noise ratio fears.
