I think building a better ZMI will be important in the long run though I'm not sure it should land in Zope 4 itself as I think it could be too big a step for that release. I wasn't able to get zam.demo (svn trunk) to run, so I don't have an opinion on ZAM itself at the moment. Note that Zope 4 is based on Zope 2 rather than BlueBream so I don't know how much of the existing work would still be applicable. I can volunteer some time towards guiding the Zope 4 release process, though it may be appropriate to find someone more comfortable with the existing svn/email/launchpad toolchain to be release manager if the consensus is to stay with that.
