Zope Weekly News is a digest of some of the useful and interesting
events which have occurred on the various Zope mailing lists and the

Somewhat quiet this week, as much of the Zope community struggles
to deal with turkey overload.

Suggestions have been made to start a Zope newsgroup, but many
believe that would only aggravate the problem by inviting more
off-topic, spammy and flammable posts. Some have suggested a
private (as in open but not part of USENET), gatewayed server. So
far, no one has stepped up to the plate by producing one.
