Of course there are hot spots. I have asked multiple times for help on the
lists and the Eurozope site to identify such related hot spots.
Also I had expect some input of the community regarding at unicode support
inside Zope. But there has been no feedback. It looks like no one needs
support in Zope ?! :-) Anyway, as a first step Zope 2.5 provides full
support for the ZCatalog. I would like to see some volunteers that could
to set up a list of requirements (the list is almost there on the Eurozope
I think) and possible solutions that could be integrated into the Zope core.
Referring to the "open letter to zope-dev" I could also charge the community
for zero feedback. But this is not the place and time for flamewars. Instead
we should bundle the power of ZC and the community. The opening of the CVS
is a good starting point but I would like to see more people contributing.
