Nice, I would be interested in helping as well. Perhaps you could open a
launchpad project or something?
We are planning a new web app using GWT (Google Web Toolkit) as
frontend. We already have an application written in Django that spits
json to a GWT interface and we are planning a new app based on zope3
(yeah, I did not like django that much, perhaps I should write about
this when I get to know zope3 more...)
