I see you've removed the zope.app.schema package from the release. I
don't think we can do that. The vocabulary registry that looks up
vocabularies as utilities is located in there
(zope.app.schema.vocabulary). It's a vital part for Zope 3.

Hm. Why?  I don't really want something that is just an alternate
spelling for getUtility? Does it provide any value beside looking up
a utility?

The (now
deprecated) 'vocabulary' ZCML directive is also defined there, we need
it for BBB.

Right.  I noticed that there were lots of tests failing in the release
and I feared it had something to do with this.  Since I couldn't
even make a release as things stood, I decided not to worry about it for now.

I suggest we remove everything that has to do with mutable schemas
somewhere else (zope.mutableschema?) and leave zope.app.schema in the
release. Alternatively, we can move the two items I mentioned above to
zope.schema and indeed get rid of zope.app.schema in the release.

OK, I suggest we move the zope.mutable schema out, or even remove it.
I actually porefer removing it. It will still be in the repositoiry. I don't want to
create a new mysterious directory with non-working code.

P.S.: Btw, there's lots of junk lurking in zope.app that we aren't
shipping and I don't see anyone stepping up to fix some of this
bitrotten code (it's been there since the pre-X3.0 days). Perhaps it's
time to move all of this out of zope.app, or even the Zope 3 tree

Yes, but let's get through the "June" release first. :/
