Hello everyone:

We have published a draft set of formation documents
for the Zope Foundation.  A zip file of the complete
set of docs is available online at:

o http://tinyurl.com/7crf8

The next steps in the process are:

o Community review, comment, incorporate feedback
   cycle(s) (one or two?)

o Submit final drafts to the Software Freedom Law
   Center (SFLC) for iteration/editing/polishing

o Form the Foundation!  :^)

Please participate in the review and comment period.
You can do so via IRC and/or email.

   o IRC: We have scheduled the following IRCs to
          discuss the docs in real time:

          Who: Zope Community
          What: IRC to discuss Zope Foundation formation
          Where:  #zope on irc.freenode.net

          When:  #1:  Fri, Dec 9, 730a - 9a (US/EST)
                 #2:  Tue, Dec 20, 730a - 830a (US/EST)

                 US/EST is GMT-5.

   o Email: We've also created a mailing list for
            Foundation-related topics.  This list is
            available at:
