Now we are helping Zope in the Python 3 wonderland: Almost 20 people started with the reanimation of Zope. We are working mostly on porting important dependencies of Zope to Python 3:
- In the discussion we found out that the through the web (TTW) approach needs to be kept in Zope because it is needed by software in production and there is no way to change the use case.
- It is needed anyway in AccessControl.
- TextIndexNG3 aka zopyx.txng3.ext and zopyx.txng3.core
- even Grok!
Zope 4 is now per default based on WSGI. Thanks to Hanno who invested much time to make the WSGI story of Zope much more streamlined.
We found out that the ZTK (Zope Toolkit) is no longer used in any of the projects using packages of it (Zope, Grok, Bluebream – as it is dead). It should be kept to test compatibility between the packages inside the ZTK.
