FWIW, I think you're absolutely right. We can't just declare it "dead" 
because it is convenient to our goal of having clearer definitions about 
what we're working with.

A piece of open source software is dead if no-one uses it and no-one 
maintains it. At least then, existing users can't count on bug fixers or 
security fixes.

I think Martijn's point in starting this thread was to try to identify 
who wants to maintain Zope 3 as an app server and as something that gets 
released going forward. Let's give those people a chance to respond.

Declaring things dead has a tendency to become a self-fulfilling 
prophecy, and probably not something we should do lightly.
