Following the announces from Zope Corporation yesterday about their willingness to create a Zope Foundation (that would manage independently Zope 2 and Zope 3 projects) and to participate actively in the Z3ECM project, I would like to express briefly Nuxeo's position about all the news.

First, we would like to thank Zope Corporation for Zope 2 and Zope 3 as Open Source software, they are amazing products !

For us as far as we know, the Zope Foundation is a really great news. This will probably solve the main issues we heard from people in the community and from some customers (brand and copyright security). It's really great news that Zope Corporation is now ready to go further on the community way and involvement. We are ready to help as much as needed in establishing the ZF as a vendor-neutral organisation with the mission to develop and promote a great technology (like the Apache or Eclipse Foundations). The Zope Foundation will, IOHO, a big step towards "project 10X" to establish Zope as a leading development platform for all kinds of web and internet applications.

On the Z3ECM project, we are very glad that Zope Corporation wants to actively join the project ! We are certain that having ZC resources on this project will clearly help to build better products and solidify the platform.

We will also support the move of the Z3ECM project to the ZF when the issues of copyright ownership will be discussed with the project stakeholders. It could definitely help unifying CMS zope community and will give more credibility to the platform from a customer point of view.

We will also support the move of the Z3ECM project to the ZF when the issues of copyright ownership will be discussed with the project stakeholders

In short, we are really happy and excited, and will definitely supports ZC to move forward on these topics with the other members of the Zope community.

I'm pretty confident that the whole community will support this as well.

Best regards,
