You indicated this was indeed the case. I did absolutely not. In the very first email in this thread, you asked whether the requirement for getting your package listed (or certified for that matter) was to put the code into svn.zope.org. Here's what I responded: "No. The common repository under the wings of ZC/ZF is just *a* repository that implements the ZSCP. There can be others, for example the Plone repository, the collective repository (perhaps), etc." In fact, because of that I suggested to keep the repository proposal separate from the ZSCP proposal, as the very same email continues: "I had earlier suggested to Stephan that we should keep the common repository separate from ZSCP and there out of this proposal. IMO there should be a separate proposal for the common repository. I guess he didn't agree." > So in order to gain ANY level of certification, even "Listed" Zope Foundation > has to own the code. Wrong.
