The Zope development is almost dead and there only a few people keeping it alive in terms of security maintenance etc. It would be unhonest to compare Zope technology with a zombie but Zope was great technology, mistakes had been made and all technology turns at some point into legacy mode. Some part of the ZCA are still great and while other parts of the ZCA should be considered as an architectural software fail. The ZODB is still great and must not hide behind so-called "NOSQL" technology - the ZODB as NOSQL ten years ago and it still superb in some way. Personally I don't see Zope on Python 3 happen at any time soon, I don't see Plone X running on Python 3 at any time soon..it's all legacy and we have to live with that. For new projects it is time to move on and learn from the good and parts of the Zope world in order to create something better.
