A couple developers recently started taking over the packages and fixing them up. I'm sure their doing a good job (and I hope they keep it up), but I don't know how close to "done" they are (ie things may change or be reorganized, or you might deviate sufficiently that it would be easier to work from the zope.org source). | Is it worth waiting | or should I just go for Zope 2?

As Andreas pointed out, it is really quite simple and not a nightmare. Furthermore, if you want to have some help from the packaging system, create a dummy package using 'equivs' to depend on the system components your z3 application will need.
