To construct a Zope skyscraper on Fedora

Hello, all!

And the foundations and first floors of this skyscraper is Zope2 and its 
dependencies, which I have built up. The latest version of Zope2 is 2.12.7.

All the spec files are accessible through my git repo:;a=tree;h=refs/heads/master;hb=master

And an yum repo (i686 and SRPM) for F-13 is also available:

Steps to make a trivial test:
$ wget
$ su -c "cp zope-cheese.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/"
$ su -c "yum install zope"
$ su -c "service zope start"
$ xdg-open http://localhost:8080/

The 'zope' package itself is most kept under the same conventions of the 
legacy 2.10.x 'zope' package.

So, you can see, there are about 70 source packages to be review.

And I hope for the co-maintainership of following packages, which are 
required by Zope2:

Other Zope2 applications including Plone and other related frameworks 
like Grok and Zope3(BlueBream) are not yet touched. But I should have 
the ambition to get them to Fedora, and even more importantly, to (ep)el6.

And after all, any help or instruction is really wanted.
