The reason the SchoolTool project would be interested in putting a couple 
packages in the common repository would be so they are moved into the Zope 3 
core pr are part of the distribution. It would mean that the SchoolTool 
developers have to maintain less code.

However, we do not need to put all of SchoolTool into the repository just to 
get certified. We can ask for certification with the SchoolTool code living 
in another repository. In fact, I think SchoolTool might be one of the first 
outside projects to gain certifications, since it is the only large project 
that I know of that fulfills the level 2 requirements (I think it could even 
get level 3).
