My take would be the following.  It's probably contentious.

- The current zope3 project is regarded as a project for the  
aggregation of the pieces into the old tgz and the old mgmt UI.  This  
should be clarified on the project page.

- There is a new Zope Framework (I would prefer Zope Libraries myself,  
but let's not start that again ;-) ) umbrella project, controlled by a  
new Zope Framework team.

- There are multiple zope.* (and z3c.* and whatever) library  
projects.  They are part of the umbrella project (if so desired by the  
pertinent parties).

- The current zope3 project should be considered part of the Zope  
Framework *at least for now* because it has legacy information.  If  
someone reassigns the bugs and blueprints and so on to the pertinent  
library projects (or to the Zope Framework), "zope3" could no longer  
be part of the Zope Framework umbrella project, if desired.  That's  
work, though, so I'd be inclined to see if it happens and meanwhile be  
happy to take the zope3 project in as legacy.
