The point is not to make fluffy release names. The point is to have some sort of branding - a name, a logo, a colour scheme, a web site, a set of 10-minute tutorials, a set of code examples, a set of exemplars of systems that have been built successfuly on Zope 3 and are kicking ass, a set of press releases to the likes of slashdot, freshmeat, and other sites that geeks read. It all needs to come together. But having a name that signifies that there is something a little more than a new major-version release going on here would go a long way in giving people something to fix their minds on. Exactly how much Zope 2 code is in Zope 3? This is Zope only because it is built by the same community and draws on the experiences of Zope 2, it is much more of a revolution than an evolution. It's "Zope - tried that, didn't like it" or "Zope - never heard of it" vs. "Zope 3 Zest, you say? Sounds like something new and exciting, I better check it out... oooh, look, pretty web site, aha, I see how this fits together, you know, I think I may buy a book and learn a little more." (and if you think that's an unreasonable account of a selection process, you haven't worked much with people outside our little sphere). There are a lot of people on the periphery voicing these concerns, and it seems that only people who already know Zope inside-out think that everything's just fine and dandy. Is it really? Or is it just fear of change? Martin _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
