I fail to find an explanation *why* that is.

I'm not quite sure it has to be part of Zope 2 as you install it. Having it in would go a long, way, though, allowing us to use svn:externals during development and potentially fix issues ourselves as appropriate.

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

Again, why?

Probably similar reasoning as above. Note that Plone does not at this time depend on Managable Index, though I know some Plone developers who are enthusiastic about it.

* Plone is shipping with lots of products already, I don't see why it simply can't ship with another one. Seriously, why? Plus, if they're really trying to solve problems for Plone 3, then it seems to be too late already. The target platform, Zope 2.10, is feature-frozen since long.

We will ship with this. I think the original point that made us nervous is having to get tarballs from, and not having a access to a repository.

Whether it ships with Zope or not will probably depend on how valuable people find it. I've not used it myself, but it sounds like it makes the catalog a bit more powerful and usable.

It might not be a popular opinion in Zope 2 land where people would like to have as much working out of the box as possible, but I think we oughta think about making Zope 2 rather smaller than bigger (where "smaller" doesn't mean "ship with less stuff" but "have fewer inter-dependencies" so that it's better reusable). An Egg-based deployment mechanism with explicitly defined dependencies will allow us to do so.

I completely agree with this. On the other hand, as Andreas points out, if we are monkey patching ZCatalog to address deficiencies, then there may be reasons for tighter integration.

I think the first step is to move it to the repository and let the community prod it a little.
