Based on recent discussions, I've created a proposal:
to rename the "zope" package to "z". Unless there are strong objections, we'll do this after we move the Zope repository head to subversion at the end of the month.
I've gotten enough negative feedback to "z", that I've added an alternative 4 to the proposal:
4. Rename the Zope package to Zope2 and provide a legacy Zope package
- Rename the "Zope" package to "Zope2"
- Put the Zope 3 "zope" package into the same location as "Zope2" in a combined installation.
- Provide a legacy directory containing a "Zope" package. There will be an option to add this to the Python path. This option will be enabled by default in Zope 2.8 and disabled by default in Zope 2.9.
Importing Zope will cause a deprecation warning.
The legacy Zope package will have a README.txt file that explains what it is and refers people to the zope and Zope2 packages.
This would mainly impact Zope 2.
What do people think about alternative 4?
