Agreed, from a Grok perspective: if there is no shared interested anymore in the zope.app.* packages, Grok will need to take up maintainership for those itself. In a way we already did by upping the versions of several of those package already. The zope.app.* packages that really are in use for a vanilla Grok-based application are zope.app.applicationcontrol, zope.app.appsetup and zope.app.debug and zope.app.wsgi. If there would be a strong drive from the Grok community to have Python 3 compatibility, they (and that includes me :) ) should port those zope.app.* packages or build the equivalents. I'll make note of this on the Grok dev list as well. regards, jw _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
