Hello all - 

[I'm intentionally cross-posting this because there are a number 
 of folks using CVS that may read only one or the other]

If you've looked at the dev.zope.org site lately, you have 
probably noticed a preliminary Zope 2.4 plan:


The major goal of Zope 2.4 will be to make Python 2.1 the 
officially supported (and required) Zope platform. A 
project dedicated to assessing what that involves has 
been started at:


Enough progress has been made on identifying tasks that we 
want to start getting some things done. However, this will 
have an effect on those of you that are currently running 
from the Zope CVS.

We are soon going to begin checking in changes to the head of 
the Zope CVS that will require the use of Python 2.1. Once we 
start on the 2.4 tasks, you will not be able to use a public 
CVS checkout of Zope with older Pythons.

We are not going to start this until after Python 2.1 final 
is out (expected next monday), but wanted to give CVS'ers 
fair warning. If you are using the current public CVS and 
don't want to start using Python 2.1, you should either 
avoid doing any CVS updates until you're ready to migrate 
or move off of CVS to a current (2.3.1) release.
