+Weekly Zope developer meeting
+This is the summary of the weekly Zope developer meeting which happened on
+Tuesday, 2010-04-06 on #zope at irc.freenode.org from 3pm to 3:30pm (UTC).
+The agenda for this meeting is available in the mailing list archives:
+The IRC logs are located here:
+Tres Seaver was filling in for Christian Theune as conventer due to illness.
+Zope2 release manager
+The community welcomes Hanno Schlichting as the new release manager for
+Zope2.  In addition to closing / responding to dozens of bugs in the past
+week, Hanno has also proposed a roadmap for Zope 2.13 and has made the
+release tag for Zope 2.12.4.
+Porting packages to Zope3
+Lennart Regebro reported that he has branches waiting for the first three
+"most depended-on" ZTK packages (``zope.event``, ``zope.interface``, and
+``zope.testing``).  After considering naming the new releases ``4.0``,
+the consensus was to just name them the next "normal" major release, as
+long as there are no backward-incompatible API changes.
+Some discussion of the general problem of doctests breaking due to exception
+formatting led to a suggestion from Jim Fulton that we implement a testing
+API similar the ``unittest.TestCase.assertRaises``, but with the additional
+feature that it returns the exception value, to permit further assertions
+about the state of that object.
+No one had new updates on the topic.  Sidnei da Silva reported that he
+is close to reconstructing the script used to build ``win64`` images for
+Amazon EC.
+Tres Seaver reported that his request to Microsoft for dontaed VisualStudio
+licnese to support builds / tests of ``zope.*`` packages on Windows
+for Python 2.4 and 2.5 is still stalled.
+Baiju M noted that Rackspace can also support Windows in its cloud:
+http://www.rackspacecloud.com/ .
+Tracker status
+Charlie Clark reported that he had gotten his script for checking
+Launchpad for "languishing" bugs working.  He posted that package to
+``zope-dev at zope.org`` during the meeting.
+Bug Days
+After some discussion, Adam Groszer and Baiju M agreed to widen their planned
+``bluebream`` sprint to include more general ZTK issues.  The sprint,
+originally set for Saturday, 2010-04-10, was rescheduled to Saturday,
+2010-04-24.  Charlie Clark asked for announcments, plus volunteers willing
+to help mentor new exterminators during the bug day.  Adam and Baiju will
+organize a web page for coordinating the bug day activity, and send out
+the announcements.
+Carried Over
+- Resurrecting the "sprint schedule" page,
+  http://wiki.zope.org/zope3/SprintSchedule
+- A more general calendar (e.g., for Zope / Python related conferences,
+  symposia, sprints, etc.)
