Right. In the last days I felt like in the future we should spend some quality time (maybe face to face at a conference or sprint) to review what happened to the way people work with Zope and how we define it.
I think "what's happened" is something very simple, inevitable, and reasonable: We've stopped working on Zope 3 and moved to working on our applications. This changes how we think about the place of Zope 3 in our work more than anything else. It's no longer a product itself, but a means to an end. This is what we intended from the beginning, but the shape we predicted for the result was more similar to Zope 2 than has turned out to be useful. The move to separate "satellite" projects is really a move from using an all-singing, all-dancing framework for all applications to using different sets of libraries for each application based on what's needed for the application. I think this is a good thing. -Fred -- Fred L.
