1. Why not a zope2.org site?
2. Tentative, shaky suggestion on maintenance of website
Sorry for this post from someone not contributing at all. My only contribution
to zope ( apart from making a hundred or so people aware of it and a couple of
dozens attempt to adopt it on a few projcts) has been regular visits to
zope.org at least once a week from 1999, and almost daily since 2004.
This discussion, coupled with the discussion on separating the zope3
repository, is extremely motivating and also very educating to technologically
challenged people like me.
Since both zope2 and zope3 are "live" projects in their own right, and at this
point both have something to offer individually to the development community
and more importantly to each other, and since (probably, hopefully) ZOPE as a
brand is more important for both, why not have a zope2.org site in addition to
zope.org and zope3.org? The main zope.org site could address a common vision
and focus on commonalities and common concerns, while the individual sites
could focus on issues specific to them. I have just now discovered that
zope2.org as a domain name is available and have requested it to be booked. How
do I transfer it to the zope community, if it gets booked at all?
2. Maintenance: Is this a way?
As far as maintenance is concerned, I could suggest to a few developers -maybe
not very experienced- ( from Mumbai, India) that they help part time. In that
case, could they get guidance from the community seniors through email? I would
also appreciate if someone can guide me on the hardware, software and
connectivity infrastructure needed for this. Hopefully, over a period,
capability will get built locally.
I would also like to explore the possibility of persuading Science/ Engineering
students to develop in/ for zope as part of their academic project work. Any
I take this opportunity to thank all those involved in Zope.
