If only people could write the ideal software first time! From my point of view as a Zope 3 contributor, I'm extremely glad that the patterns, use-cases and learning experiences were developed in the CMF, outside of the core of Zope. If what is going into Zope 3 had been worked into the core of Zope 2 instead of being tried out in the CMF, the speed of development would have been an order of magnitude slower, and there would have been a much greater risk of increasing the number of deprecated APIs in the Zope 2 core. So, bravo to the CMF developers and contributors. Not only do we have a useful and innovative framework today, we have the blueprints for a better Zope tomorrow. -- Steve Alexander _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
