I'm not sure that's a goal of this proposal. The word "Zope" will continue to have its previous series of semi-competing meanings. The word will now also be attached to "Framework", which will be the emphasis. As I read it, regarding the diffusion, asking the stakeholders in the existing meanings of the word to yield is not part of the proposal. (Thankfully, as that is hopeless.) The focus, though, will be on greatest-common-factor of the shared meaning. Not a solution to diffusion, but an improvement. --Paul _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
