But we should drop them responsibly.
The maintainer who dropped them also went to a great deal of trouble to ensure that the dependencies were fixed, and that what remains is a coherent and usable set of the packages which used to be Zope3. Because of his work, and that of others, the Zope2 trunk can now run against the zope.app-free ZTK he created. You need to identify whose ox is being gored here by dropping those packages: I don't see anybody but you arguing for their inclusion. In particular, I don't see anybody who knows *which* zope.app packages they need, and has a credible argument for why those pacakges should be maintained within the ZTK, rather than by the folks who actually use them. If the ZTK is to be held hostage to a (nonsensical) BBB for nameless users, I would be in favor of just copying Hanno's version of the ZTK config into the Zope2 tree and have Zope2 ignore the ZTK per-se.
