The way it was done was also incredibly unprofessional and created a lot
It is our opinion that Zope 3 is more than ready for production use, which
is why we decided to drop the X for experimental from the name.
Problem is, the X was never about whether Zope was "ready for production
use" - it had been *explicitly assigned* as a marker that meant Zope 2
migration/support was not there yet. A lot of people actually believed
this would happen (as the Zope roadmap and PR spiel told them so), even
though all of us knew it wouldn't happen.
(I know the reasons, I know the plans for convergence, I know how Five
works - I'm just pointing out that this part made a lot of people lose
faith in Zope)
