I negotiated with Wichert and we will focus on
collective.recipe.template from now on. I'll apply all changes,
extensions, docs and tests that went into z3c.recipe.template (in fact
only a few lines were copied from c.r.template) now to
collective.recipe.template (one template generator less).

Wichert does not want to switch the license to avoid license
proliferation. I can understand that.

So, if you want to contribute (I'd be happy to see this), you can use
c.r.template from now on. Having template generating support in stock
buildout, however, would also be nice.

Best regards,
