Go to the Linux World Expo or EuroZopeCon,
The opinions expressed in Zope Weekly news are solely the authors', and not the opinions of Digital Creations, The Zope Community at-large, or the Spanish Inquisition.
If you or your company are doing something cool with zope, "submit it to the Zope Weekly News", mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org for possible inclusion.
And Now For Something Completely Different:
If you are on the American continent, you must get a "free exhibits-only pass", http://www.digicool.com/gary/lwexhibitspass.pdf and attend the Linux World Expo January 31st / February 2nd, New York. If you are in Europe you must attend the "EuroZopeCon", http://lwn.net/2000/1221/a/eurozopecon.php3 January 23 and 24, Amsterdam.
A *true* Zopatista would visit both.
Train for the Revolution
Zopatista! Are you getting skewered because some PHB is making nervous-noises about Zope? Tell them that they could take any of their employees, and send them to kaivo to train in Python with Mark Lutz, author of _Learning Python_:
Then the employee could learn "Zope Zen": http://www.kaivo.com/KaivoCourses/display_catalog#jumpto?referring_entity=Internal&catalog_course=Zope%20101.
Finally, they could have that employee work on Zope for *three years* -- or, for about the same price, they could buy a shrink-wrapped content management system.

Zope 2.3 beta 2 release coming soon
Zope 2.3 beta 1 was released last week - so far there have been only relatively minor issues. Beta 2 may come as early as Friday the 19th, with fixes to the current known issues. We hope to get 2.3 finalized by the 29 of January.
Action in the Fishbowl has still been pretty slow since the holidays. High on the priority list after the 2.3 release is to pay some attention to organizing the dev.zope.org site.

Amos is on vacation, gorging himself no-doubt on French Fries, French Bread, and French Dressing. I love French cuisine.
Everything I'm working on is secret this week. Sorry. Some great book news is on its way so stay tuned! I guess I should throw in at least "one link": http://www.zope.org/Documentation to something quite useful.

Track This Session!
You have to download and test "Core Session Tracking", http://www.zope.org/Members/mcdonc/Products/CoreSessionTracking because the next generation Zope.org will depend on it heavily.
Thanks to Andrew Kenneth Milton for pointing out that SQL Methods were absent from the new Documentation page.
A big round of applause for Ken Manheimer, for not only putting together WikiForNow but actually spending the time to update all the wikis on zope.org. Edit a wiki today!
