I hear you! A couple of remarks. The SchoolTool project is blessed by having a 
project manager that is not a developer. Tom (Hoffman) manages all our 
proposals and keeps the Web site content up-to-date. Furthermore, SchoolTool 
development is currently paid for, so SchoolTool can promise features for a 
certain release.

Zope 3, on the other hand, has a time-based release cycle and is developed by 
community members. Thus we cannot make any promise about what features will 
make it into the next release. We use proposals to only decide what could 
make it.
