- -1. As a branding choice (as opposed to a technology), "Zope 3" *is* a
dead-end: it implies a strategy (replacing Zope 2) which we no longer
believe in. I think the consequences of the brand confusion are hard
for those uf us "inside" to estimate, but they are far from trivial.
Continuing to "push" that brand is confusing to outsiders, who don't
understand why anyone would still be using "Zope 2" four years after the
first release of "Zope 3". The folks who are using "Zope 3" can
certainly cope with a split / rename.
