+1, and I say that knowing that it means I have to help. I'm willing to write the docs for whoever works on the code.
A gentle reminder on some of the posts in this thread. Please don't respond with "I'd really like <some good idea>." Respond with "I'm willing to do the work for <some good idea>." That's part of the point with Brian's note. You don't _have_ to do the code work. If you write up the docs for <some good idea>, you've likely done most of the work. --Paul Behrens Matt - Grand Rapids wrote: > Brian Lloyd wrote: > > > Let's get a discussion > >> started to define 2.6. > > > This isn't exciting by any means unless you're one of the people who > package Zope up for distribution, or maybe you're one of the people who > manage lots of little Zopes on one system; but I'd like to revive the > "grand unified Zope installation and control" proposal that has been > floated by many people (including me) in one form or another for some > time.
