Off-topic on this list, but for the record: Most CMF 2.3 changes are in 
code that is not used by Plone. AFAICS the only changes that might 
affect Plone are the SyndicationTool modifications. But those 
modifications are anyway not in a releasable state because they cause at 
least some BBB issues. If that's the reason why Plone 4.1 can't use CMF 
2.3, I'd vote for backing out those changes.

So what is the plan?

Maintenance for Zope 2.12, CMF 2.2 and Plone 4.1 ends simultaneously at 
the end of this year?

Or end Zope 2.12 maintenance earlier and make CMF 2.2 releases for an 
unmaintained platform? Or drop support for the major target platform 
between CMF 2.2.x and 2.2.y?
