You are correct and I'm not going to argue over facts. My perspective on those 
facts is
different, though. The "small group of Zope 3 developers", as you say yourself, 
really use some help, couldn't it? I think a repository reunification (along 
with the
development process reunification which has already happened for the most 
part), would
actually shift more resources from Zope 2 to Zope 3 than the other way around. 
After all,
all of the major Zope projects and solution providers do not argue with the 
fact that Zope
3 is the future. But, like Martin Aspeli nicely said, getting there is the hard

I don't think we have to be *that* speculative here. When some of the currently
Zope-2-focused developers put their +1 on this proposal, I take it they also 
meant this
as a commitment to further contribute to Zope 2 and 3. Thus by the amount of 
this proposal gathers, I think we can also measure the currently unused 
potential of Zope
contributions. At least to a degree.
