Thanks for the feedback. I have changed the Repoze to BFG.
But the lines are just to indicate that there is some relation.
We tried to be very careful when talking about the relation
as we don't want to claim anything, at the same time,
it doesn't contradict anything in reality:
"Over time, other web frameworks, such as Grok / BFG evolved around
Zope 3, which primarily utilize certain library packages from Zope 3
and don't make use of the Zope 3 application server."
In the case of Plone also, it's very true:
"Other products, such as Plone also started to make use of the Zope 3
component architecture and the accompanied packages"
Also we emphasized:
"We cannot officially speak for other projects, so you can check their
documentation to understand the relationship with ZTK"
Sorry, we don't have any plan to show the exact relationship between projects.
