Ok, thanks.

That's fair enough.  Thanks for the clarification.

I understand.

FWIW, the two things I'd like are a stable 2.7 release in the short term
to setup a new site on, and a stable 2.8 release to develop a new product
on.  Sounds like Santa (aka Andreas) will be bringing the former ;-).  I
think in the back of my mind, I was hoping that more people waiting on 2.8
to get their features into zope might speed things up on the latter -
hence my wondering about the motivations for a 2.7.5 (which you have now
cleared up).

That said, I'm in no position to do anything other than inquire (in a most
friendly and appreciative manner) about 2.8 as I'm certainly not on of the
people with the 'detailed knowledge' to fix zclasses and garbage
