Versions are a powerful tool for group collaboration. You don't
have to run a live server and a test server since versions let you
make experiments, evaluate them and then make them public when you
decide that all is well. You are not limited to working in a
version alone. Many people can work in the same version. This way
you can collaborate on version's changes together, while keeping
the changes hidden from the general public.

I encountered a problem using versions such that there was some kind of deadlock: I could not save or discard
changes in a version, because ZOPE told me that there was a lock from somewhere else. I was not able to find
out how to cope with that problem. Perhaps it would be useful to add some paragraph to the book how the
handling of exceptional situations should be handled, and what means ZOPE provides to find out the source of
such an exception.
