At least no one is expecting to make such big changes by yourself. Being

proposal have nothing but support to offer and you know that.

I am as stubborn refusing this proposal as you are pushing it. Right now there are more -1 votes than +1 votes.

My vote is a +1 too.

Maybe it is time retract the proposal? Furthermore, I have yet to see contributions for Zope 3 from people using Five. We are not even getting bug reports.

Maybe because the small part of Zope 3 they use through Five is well tested?

Frankly if someone refactors Zope 3 and this causes tests breakage in Zope 2 or Five tests, a Zope 2 or a Five developer will be happy to fix them very quickly, and there's a 50% chance that it will reveal something missed in the Zope 3 tests.

Also I've seen some comments that the Zope 3 base will become "polluted", that's nonsense, there will always be "pure" packages of Zope 3 out there without the Zope 2 part. Remember this is a proposal about merging repositories only, so that lots of time is not wasted setting up sandboxes, merging stuff left and right, and running tests in some forgotten area that also matters.

And if Zope 3 developers don't want to run the Zope 2 tests because they're costly in time, it's trivial to do so.
