Re: Zope?

Hi Malek, 

This is certainly a valid question. Several of the core developers use Zope as 
web/portal servers at their places of work. GNUe is even switching to a Zope 
backend for our website. 

While it's true that Zope is an application server, it is our opinion that Zope 
is a specialized, targeted web application server -- it's targeted at serving 
web applications / content. Even their site says this: 

    "Zope is a leading open source application server, 
     specializing in content management, portals, and 
     custom applications."

However, I could be way off base... sometimes free/open source projects are 
more general-purpose than they at first comes across. In any case, our tools 
are fairly modular in nature, so if someone wanted to use Zope as a backend, 
our tools should support it. 

I hope this was somewhat helpful.
