I have done.  I am just wanting to get a sense.

comp.soft-sys.zope? comp.infosystems.www.appservers.zope?  Maybe the
appserver would be better, yes!  I don't know about the soft-sys -- what
does that *mean*? :-)

Yes, probably!  Yes, why not!  It would do a good job of getting crossover
people and getting another way to really index the content.

I wouldn't want to spit the group, but I do think that Python is too
low-level for a lot of Zope people... most Zope people do need Pythin
sooner or later, but Python's group is a little too much for some/many

Thanks for you kind words and support,
