please post to the zope at zope.org list for the best change of getting help 
with zope.

Right now DC is updating zope for 2.1 but that is incurring many changes in 
it. Version 2.4 of zope will require python 2.1 and it is coming along 
pretty fast. If you look on zope.org the current zope news tells about the 
status of 2.4.
