This is a very generous offer! It meets my wish of not loosing collector
data and Jim said he'd be happy just using launchpad.

Yay! I guess that would be done by our single point of contact, right?

This means we'll have to find a decision within the next week.

I'm +1 on this in general.

One question popped up for me:

  Are we talking about the Zope 3 collector or all collectors on

  Launchpad seems to give us even more benefit if we switched all
  collectors over, because we would get the upstream management
  capability. However, this is the zope3-dev list and I'm not sure we
  could decide this for Zope 2 and ZODB.

  OTOH we could make a first step by switching with Zope 3 and let
  everybody else join us in the mid-/longterm.

  I can also imagine that extending the discussion to CMF, Zope 2 and
  the ZODB right now would render us inable to get to a decision within
  the next days.

  My own conclusion on this is therefore that we should talk about the
  Zope 3 collector only.
