Proposals for all of this stuff sound *great* to me.  We didn't  
propose it simply because we don't have time.  We didn't want open  
sourcing our code to be contingent on having enough time to make the  
proposals and do the package rearrangements.

If desired.  Pretty sure that zope.locking, zope.file (once blob  
support is in), and zope.mimetype ought to go in the core.  we have a  
zope.html that we'll get out soonish too (based in some TIKS  
integration of FCKeditor--thanks Roger!) that we expect to be in the  

We're not sure if "in the core" means "in the Zope 3 repo": as I said  
in the other message, check with Jim on that.

Someone will need to propose what they want to merge, and reconcile  
with Jim what that means in  terms of repo and releases.  We'll help.

Did I already answer this?

I'd be happy to have most of zc.catalog go in zope, and maybe some  
other parts of the new packages.  It's a combination of what the  
community thinks ought to be part of a core release; how that will  
affect our packaging story, as you said; and who is going to do the  
necessary proposing and knitting.
