Community Resources

Mailing lists

The Zope community gathers in a few Mailman based mailing lists. (Mailman provides an overview of the collection of public mailing lists on zope.org.)

List Description
Zope-Announce [Archives] For everyone in the Zope community, this list carries announcements about significant Zope events - software releases, public news coverage, etc.
Zope [Archives] The general list for Zope users - operation of and content management with Zope, including basic dtml programming and so forth.
Zope-Dev [Archives] A separate list for Zope developers, focusing on Zope's innards and continuing evolution.
ZDP [Archives] A list for the Zope Documentation Project (ZDP), a volunteer effort (RAH RAH!) to improve the documentation and other information resources, at least initially a FAQ and howto's, for the Zope community. Visit the ZDP site to see the ongoing work.

(We also have a small collection of HowTo documents onsite.)

Zope-Checkins [Archives] A mailing list reporting the checkin messages of the core Zope developers as checkins are committed. This is corresponds to the public CVS distribution, described below. This list is not for discussion - use zope-dev instead.
Digicool-CVS [Archives] A mailing list for discussing the Digital Creations public-CVS arrangements, and also for checkin messages for the core administrative files on which the arrangment is based - see below for details.

Public CVS

Digital Creations is hosting continuously up-to-date mirrors of Zope developer's CVS-based source code repositories, so the community at large can track Zope source code changes as they are applied. Follow the instructions to arrange for your own checkouts over the internet, and see the zope-checkins and Digicool-CVS entries for info about receiving checkin annoucements as checkins are made.

We are initially making the core Zope sources available, and plan to bring other projects online - from developers within and outside of Digital Creations. If you are continuing to develop a body of Zope-relevant code that you'd like to publish via CVS from zope.org, contact me, klm@digicool.com.

In any case, if you are maintaining or considering development of a Zope project, and are interested in support, contact us .

We are developing a contributed code archive. We are planning on using Michel Pelletier's ZTrove. In the mean time we have a temporary contrib area available.
