Life is interesting, isn't it ? :)

This does change the landscape of things. ZBook was going to be an zope
dummy kind of book, but as you are going 
to publish the book under an open license, it's kindda duplication.
Yeah, writing a more advance topics are more *interesting* :)
But still, it depends on the rest of the team.

Tom, rather than waiting for someone, how about you to become the ZDP
middle man !! Just do it. It's just a matter of communication.

Not much, but it's already in the works.
