When it comes to Zope people seem to have 2 opinions. (Maybe that's the 
2 in the name ;-) ). A lot of people seem to use it (with or even 
without Plone) and loving it and a lot of people call it dead because 
there is (almost) no new development. At least on the Zope package 
itself. I myself like to work with Zope too but I know web development 
changed in the last couple of years and there are other options around.
I don't know if it is worth the thing but to have a future Zope needs

  - Usability improvements (frameless, responsive ZMI)
  - Technical improvements (Port to Python3, WSGI, ...)

The technical improvements could be organized/financed with a pledgie 
the others are possibly harder to solve.

My 2 cents
