Hey Fabio,

Thanks again for coming back on this, this is quite encouraging.

I don't know, unfortunately.

I might've missed your statement on this before, but do you think you 
could work with a renamed Zope 3? The same technology but with a 
different name? We could easily create a 'foo.zope.org' for it just like 
we have 'grok.zope.org', or we could of course start with a new domain name.

I think a fresh take on Zope 3 would help focus the efforts as well, and 
perhaps dumping the conceptual baggage would help attract new users and 
developers. But this discussions is fraught with danger. :)

The ZCA is well in hand and I hope it's going to do better than ever, 
managed as part of the Zope Toolkit project. I hope we'll eventually 
gain improved documentation describing it too, right there on zope.org.

Very cool! So, what about the name? Open to a change?
