We had the very same discussion with the guys from Canonical at some months
ago at PyCon. My personal opionion: the Zope developers don't care much
about release dates (that the "it's done when it is done" attitiude -
bad...). Therefore we can not and won't care much about the release
requirements of each single distribution. The other question: are Plone
included with some Linux distribution important for attracting people to
My opionion: no. It's nice having OFTB support for Plone and Zope on the
but the Zope and Plone packages raised more problems for serious Zope/Plone
users in the past than they actually solved. Serious installations usually
install their own Python, Zope & Plone from the sources or using zc.buildout
nowadays (this approach is supported by the Zope and Plone developers).
