for next release we plan to replace several parts with the corresponding components from Zope 3 (e.g. ZPT´). Philipp is working on a proposal on that issue. In addition I would like to get rid of some old stuff that is no longer maintained and buggy:

- ZopeTutorial (could be ripped off without implications and made available
  for download on zope.org)

- HelpSys - from a programmers view pretty much useless and not very
  helpful. I consider to replace it with something more useful (not sure
  we can re-use apidoc from Zope 3 in some way, perhaps the inclusion
  of Dieter's Docfinder might be more useful for programmers)

- Gadfly(DA) - do we really need this? We discussed this already. In my
  opinion the purpose of Gadfly is only educational but nothing that one
  really needs or uses for production. It could be removed and made
  available for download on zope.org.

And my favourite enemy in Zope: ZClasses :-) I would like to mark them _clearly_ as an obsolete feature (DeprecationWarning, Warnings in the ZMI and the Zope Book). I _don't_ propose to remove them at some point but ppl should be aware that they are using one of the most-scary components in Zope (please no further discussion about the pros and cons of ZClasses..this discussion took already place already a bunch of times on the list).
