I've been trying to follow this discussion (though discussions on z3-base
tend to become ridiculously long). I quite like Joel Moxley's idea about
shpping Zope 3 CA, and then Zope 3 Server that sits on top of the CA.
Actually, the way it looks like this is going is simply to break Zope 3
into smaller pieces (probably as eggs), from which we will be at liberty
to choose what we want. At the same time, I'm hoping that more pieces of
the Zope3-the-appserver will be folded back into Zope2.
I think that Jim's "Zope 5" (bad name) idea is basically where we've been
going with Zope 2.8+ and Five, so I'm not really seeing any cause for
alarm. I may be missing some subtler points here... but in general, more
componentisation is probably better as far as I'm conerned.
What are your thoughts?
