Hmm, maybe I have missed something here, but why is there such an
emphasis on "Zope Conference" all of the sudden ? AFAIR, the original
intent was to have a Zope track at a Python conference...

We should just use Charleroi, since that's where the EuroPython 
Conference Team is "officially" located.

The press release has the order right: "users and developers" :-)

Let's just leave it at "open source". I wouldn't want us to get 
into discussions about what definition of "free" we mean here and,
most of all, avoid any confusion this whole discussion might
cause. Again, the press release is right here.

Something I changed in the press-release is the mentioning of 
Java: you don't want to compare Python to Java or Zope to J2EE;
that's a road with a dead end in business talks.
