Thanks for your comments.

So it seems that people would prefer to have a topic separated from
installation (a kind of "ZQR" for Zope dirs and files) describing the
proper directory structure, files and what they do. And specific chapters
like Installation, Python Products, Security, etc.. would refer to that
topic. Right ?

David K. from ZQR, any comment or advice ?

i would rather call this the zope _source_ directory structure because
this is what the unpacked sources look like.

for the future, i think it would be highly recommended to develop a
new directory layout that is more common on e.g. unix machines.

jeff rush did a very good job with his rpm-packages spreading files
across the file-system to where they belong (/var/zope, /etc/rc* etc.)
and it would be nice if the zope community could agree on a structure
(more or less).  jeff's approach is not 100% satisfying for me yet but
i just wanted to use this posting to point out the necessity for a
proper zope directory structure again...
