I am and anyone not using Grok or BFG should be. The Zope 3 KGS maintains package compatibilities that reach beyond the Zope 3 Toolkit. For example, it maintains compatibility over a very large set of z3c packages. > With Zope 3 I mean: > > * the thing with the ZMI - do you care about the ZMI? I think boxing in Zope 3 being the ZMI app is not useful. I have not used the ZMI since 2 years now and I am still considering myself writing Zope 3 apps. > * the thing that can be installed as a particular development platform - > do you care about the installation story for Zope 3?

The installation story today is: Roll your own configuration of ZCML. > * the thing that has some kind of documentation website - do you care > about providing documentation for Zope 3 as opposed to documentation for > Grok or individual libraries? I am not interested about that. Again, I think Zope 3, the set of packages, which is a superset of the Toolkit KGS is very important to maintain. I think even for Grok people, since the exposed z3c libraries are widely useful. I have no problem keeping the Zope 3 KGS releases alive. Sooner or later we should stop the large TAR ball releases though. Regards, Stephan -- Stephan Richter Web Software Design, Development and Training Google me.
