although Zope runs on platforms different than Linux, we'll have a hard
time to certify it on multiple platforms. Usually a very specific system
configuration is given, like "Windows 2003 with Service Pack XY and
Hotfixes A, B and C".

I think we can get around that by making a small amount of assumptions
on the Linux kernel (e.g. large file support, memory, newer than 2.X.Y)
and don't go into distribution details. Additionally I'll describe the
source installation as the certified way of installing Zope, so we won't
be depending on any kind of package machinery.

So my question is: Does anybody think it will be a problem for Zope
beeing CC certified only on Linux?

Yes.  The customers of ours most likely to care about this
use Windows.  I would say in general, for better or worse, the decision
makers who would care about CC would also care about Windows.  I suspect that
the decision makers who care about linux would me likely to understand
that the platform doesn't matter that much and that certification for Windows
should make them feel warm and fuzzy about their Linux installations.
