I see no reason at all to rename anything. remeber the days when there was dBase3. and then dBase4 came allong. technically better but never took off ? To the day things are either dBase or dBase3 compatible.
A simmilar situation we have with Zope. Like dBase, Zope is a base technology. How its named is not (very) important. Nobody but techies will be interested. And they quickly will learn what the different bits in the tool-chest are used for. What ever they are named. robert Martijn Faassen schrieb: > Hey, > > Okay, in the interests of making this discussion go quickly, there has > been enough negative feedback about renaming Zope 2 to think we have no > realistic chance of renaming it. > > We are still stuck with the following perceived sequence: > > Zope 2, Zope 3 > > which implies that people should want to upgrade. > > How to get out of that bind?
