You can let your class derive from "OFS.ObjectManager.ObjectManager"
(or maybe "OFS.Folder.Folder"). Then you can put objects
into them.

It is all voluntary work...
And documentation is less fun than code...

The 2.7 edition is still a good reference.
What's new in Zope 2.8 is essentially the integration
of Zope3 via Five. You may look for a Five description
to learn what that means.

This is still valid.

Only when you want to use the new Zope3 feature via Five,
you will have to consult a Five description (and maybe read
a Zope3 book).

Do not worry too much. The right/wrong way is not absolute/objective
but relative/subjective.
