on Wednesday, April 12 in the afternoon. The official welcome 
activity will be at noon on April 8.


The workshop will be located in Cham. Cham is a Town near Zug,

Zope 3 Strategy Workshop

The future of Zope 3 and its role for other frameworks

With the recent interest of the wider community in Zope 3, it is important
to define Zope 3 in light of this. Discussions could be held about what
should be the Zope 3 core, how can other development shape the core and how
Zope 3 can best support high-level frameworks, such as Cubed.

In previous sprints we have also worked on a new face for Zope 3, a new Web
site. This and other Zope 3 marketing material could be developed during the
sprint, making the event also interesting for non-developers. It would be
really great to have a Zope 3 "promotion" leam at the sprint.

This is a great opportunity for Zope 3 core developers and framework
builders to meet and have discussions. We will define more concrete topics
to work on and discuss as we come closer to the sprint date.

Zope 3 Core Development

We have recently seen and will see a lot of reorganization of the
core. However, a lot of the changes (with exception of Jim's adapter
registry rewrite) are cosmetic, leaving some tougher technical challenges
open. Since this sprint will be a true Zope 3 sprint, we could address some
really hard-core issues, like menues, new widget package, formlib work,
etc. The actual topics will depend on the participants, of course.

Zope 3 Experimentation

Recently, there have been several experimental packages under development,
like the boston skin and the WebDev package while others have been proposed
like Shane's Web root or indirection tool. While not directly usable in a
release, this research work is necessary to give Zope 3 the cutting edge in
the future.
