My hope is that with Grok we can inject some sensibilities into Zope 3
that focus more on getting things done easily and quickly. I think that
the basis built with an attitude of reusable and flexible components is
great to build a powerful "getting things done easily and quickly"
system on top. But we really really need such a system, and I hope Grok
will be more than just a new technology but will also help drive a shift
in focus in the Zope 3 world.
And I fully support it; it's even conceivable I could contribute one
day, if I find time. This project is really exciting and deserves more
traction than it has at the moment.
It would be very interesting also if there was a path through which
Plone developers and other Five-dependents could start using Grok
productivity boosting tools.
We have core Zope 3 developers here at this sprint (Philipp, Christian
Theune), so I have some hopes we'll succeed. :)
... but it is a fine team :)
So, I agree we need what Jim proposes. We just also need what Grok tries
to offer. I think that as an open source development community that
wants to grow, we need Grok a lot more than we need splitting up Zope 3
+1, though perhaps one makes the other easier.
