Thank's for your quick reply.
I just want to recall the saying "it's all in the name".
I think 99% of all the developer that will encounter Grok will do so
first by the name. Only a small fraction of them will visit the
website and whatever riches that might be found there.
Thus, I think it is paramount to have the relationship to Zope 3
stated right there in the name. Because this is what really sets Grok
apart from other python frameworks.
Zope 3" and in both cases, the curious will want to know how...
Alternatively, you could use lots of marketing dollars/hours on
trying to educate developers around the world. ;)
