Is it going to move to the great new style that's been used for the Zope 3 wiki?

Chris - I have several thoughts on that which I wanted to air -

I took some time to get used to the new skin. I like it a lot - great work Kevin (and Tom).

(In fact I'd like to include a generic version in Zwiki as a wiki template - are the authors ok with this ? I will make it as different as you think necessary to avoid confusion with the zope wikis.)

fine with me. :)

I'm also quite fond of the basic Zwiki skin, which is adapted to my needs. For jumping around between many wikis, many pages, and doing serious wiki gardening, I find it less distracting, also the page hierarchy is clearer. For some people it will also be faster. So I wanted to leave it in place for at least a few days to give people a chance to see how it works for browsing these wikis.

I also like that big Zope planet floating in the background of the zope2 wiki. The sense of wide-open spaciousness. And I like that it's visually distinct from the zope3 wiki, so you know at a glance where you are.

I have been guessing the consensus will be to use the new skin across all the wikis, though. But I think we definitely need some way to differentiate them.

I'll see if I can come up with something.

Just now, motivated by Martijn's talk at DZUG (recommended!) I started to move the templates from /zope3 up to the root folder, then I realized the skin has zope3 wiki stuff hard-coded. So some more work is needed before the skin can be reused. Kevin, I wonder what your thoughts/plans are (feel free to try them out).
