Well Jens, I disagree.

If I where to build my own python, I would have to do formal testing
on all packages which require python, which are quite a few.

If I follow your philosophy to it's logical conclusion,
then I'd end up rolling my own linux, and having a 
"private" distribution for each production machine.

The amount of time, work and know-how required to
maintain such a setup is simply not feasible in my case.

I therefore depend on SUSE to do the security, maintenance, and
configuration for me.  That is what a distribution is all about right?

As I am defining the new setup for our servers (new and old), I thought
it would be to our advantage to use the latest 2.9.2 Zope2 release.  This 
would allow me to have the newest technologies available for future projects.

And leave the door open to do a smooth Zope2 to Zope3 migration.  

The version of Zope delivered with SUSE is 2.7.8.  My other choice is to stick 
with that....
