What's your experience with updating your Zope 3 projects, Chris?
I don't have any, reason being that this constant churn has scared me
off trying to use Zope 3 for anything "real". That said, since the churn
is invading Zope two now, I'm slowly being forced to deal with it.
Yeah, it's probably ok if you have a team of very experienced Zope
deveopers who work on the codebase all the time, but what about smaller
projects which get developed and then may not have any work done on them
for a couple of years. If you want to track security releases, for
example, then the customer has to find someone to make all the necessary
changes so the code can track recent releases.
That feels a bit smelly to me :-S
