Well, you know Fedora is python oriented but its stated aim is rapid tech
advancement. So if any Fedora effort is to be expended making zope/plone
work it should be aimed at accelerating the porting not creating yet
another reason to stall it

(Yes Debian does it another way. Have you noticed Debian lifecycles too ?)

And I understand this is not a comfortable position. But in IT confort
leads to sclerosis.
