I will note that all the ZC folks I have spoken with agree that the
*initial* invitations will go out to current contributors; it is quite
conceivable that others, such as yourself, would be included as well,
even in that initial bootstrapping phase. I for one think your
contributions to the Zope ecology are very significant, and look forward
to the day when we can collaborate more directly in the source tree.
