According to Whit, Alexander Limi seems to be interested to have
"Managable Index" in the Zope 2 distribution, as well.

I have no problems to donate "AdvancedQuery" and/or "Managable Index"
to the Zope Foundation *BUT* I will not modify the code to bring
it in line with the different style requirements usually applied
to Zope components: e.g.


  * my code uses 2 blank indentation rather than the usual 4 blank
    (to make it more readable and easier to maintain for me)

The source would have to be reformatted to fit at least in some way
with the Zope standard :-) Any volunteers?

  * I much prefer unit tests over doctests; thus, "AdvancedQuery"
    and "Managable Index" come with extensive unit tests and no

Unlikely a problem. Unit tests can not be replaced with doctests
if you want to cover edge cases.

  * I use camel case also for parameters and local variables
    and not only for functions and "global" objects.

No a  problem (for me).

Is there interest in "AdvancedQuery" and/or "Managable Index"
to become part of the Zope 2 distribution under these conditions?

No problem for importing the current state of your package on svn.zope.org.
But we need a volunteer to integrate the packages for Zope 2.11. I think your code contains some ZCatalog monkeypatches...the related code has to be integrated properly.
