Ah, I didn't realize Zope 2.12 was already based on an earlier version 
of the ZTK. Then I guess I mean zopeapp might help people transitioning 
from 2.11 to Zope 2.13. I don't know how many people are making that

I missed where you offered this list for more general reuse. If I'd 
known about it might have been useful for us working for Grok, and as a 
basis of zopeapp.

I'm interested the current zopeapp to support the Grok transition and to 
help people transition Zope 3 apps. I didn't realize Zope 2 was already 
that far along having released earlier ZTK versions.

I'm not sure what you mean here.

Anyway, there are now two lists in my mind: the ZTK list (yours), and 
the zopeapp list. Both are useful to share, though the ZTK is obviously 
the main goal. I was proposing zopeapp is useful for Zope 2 developers, 
but apparently not much as the use of the ZTK is out of sync.
