Hello all,

As some of you know, over the past few months some folks within 
Zope Corp. have been working on a new Zope component architecture.

The new component architecture seeks to make developing for Zope 
easier by clarifying and simplifying the task of extending Zope.

Enough of the preliminary thinking on the new architecture has 
now been written down to start sharing those ideas and soliciting 
the input of the community. You can find the materials for this
project at:


Specifically, the following pages of the project wiki are key
to understanding what is being contemplated:

  - VisionStatement

  - ComponentArchitectureApproach

  - ComponentArchitectureOverview

  - Glossary

We are very excited about the possibilities of this approach, but
to consider changing Zope development in such a fundamental way we 
absolutely need meaningful feedback and input from the Zope 
developer community on this. If you are a Zope developer, please 
check out the project above and let us know what you think.

Additionally, Jim Fulton will be hosting an IRC chat on Friday, 
August 3rd at 12:00pm EST on the #zope channel of 
irc.openprojects.net to answer your questions on the proposed 
component architecture (please be sure to have read the above 
pages first!). We hope to see many of you there!
