I think there are two different point of views. Zope as a library
and Zope as a product.
I think you are asking for Zope 3 as a component library.
As a developer I'm happy with this kind of library and don't
need a Zope 3 application server release.
But I also see another point of view. Zope 3 as a product we
can lobby for and a application server which is ready to use
with a easy setup. e.g. windows installer or buildout,
I think such a Zope 3 application server has the following
- easy to install and ready to use for newbees or small projects
- a proof that we are able to setup such a working server
- a working setup which 3rd party developer can develop with
- a product which the sales can show and lobby for
But who will do this?
Probably we need a own community which picks up this
task and supports a Zope application server built
with cool zope components out there.
I guess we will see some different Releases in the near
future based on zope components e.g.
- Plone 3.0
What do you think is somebody interested in doing
another release based on zope components?
And if so, does this make a Zope 3 release obsolate?
