While CCing the Debian Med list is probably an interesting idea I have
never heard that anybody here on this list (except as I said above me
several years ago) is using Zope. So I just repeat here: While in
principle interesting if you need a content management in medical care I
think nobody here is up for testing such a package. I'd volunteer to
simply create lintian clean packages in a pbuilder environment which
seems to be cheap - but if nobody is up for testing (=installing and
creating an instance inside Zope) I'm not convinced that we are doing a
good job to our users.
If you are reading Debian Med and would like to use ZMS it is a good
idea to raise your finger *now* to volunteer for testing such packages.
