Oops, am I abusing the list mission a bit by posting here?

The key factor in that scenario is communication among the splinters, so
that the core tech they depend upon, ZTK I presume, is managed in a way
that doesn't cause friction or incompatibility.  Zope-the-platform
should not splinter, only Zope-the-framework.

How will group A react if group B revises a ZTK component, improving it
for their use but *unknowningly* in a way that breaks group A's splinter?

I saw in the minutes there was a ZTK Working Group tasked with providing
this coordination at one point but that it faded away.
