I can confirm this - In fact, I was about to post about it !-) Now for the downside: - CPS is a complex beast built on top of CMF, which is a complex beast built on top of Zope2 which is itself already quite complex. - Zope2's documentation is in a very sorry state (lot of outdated stuff, sometime contracting each others, and lot of undocumented or underdocumented features and gotchas). - It's even worse for CPS and CMF since they have almost no usable documentation. Due to the hi abstraction level of these frameworks, even using-the-code-luke can become a kind of nightmare. Learning Python is surely not a problem. Any decent programmer should be able to productive with Python in less than 2 weeks. The problem is learning Zope2, then learning CMF and CPS. And this is really another story. Not to say you shouldn't use Zope or CPS - they are both great pieces of software and you should definitely take time to evaluate CPS as a possible solution. Now would you choose to stick to 'barebone' Zope, and since you're fresh to Zope, I'd say that Zope3 might be a far better option than Zope2. And AFAICT, Zope3 seems to be better documented than Zope2.
