Hi. I have just setup CMF2 and am very excited about the new 
possibilities with zope. I am likely to have a few questions to begin 
with since there is a bit of a learning curve. I am planning on changing 
my sites and products to work with Five and CMF2.

My first question has to do with GenericSetup. I have portals that 
require the adding of a variety of tools etc. So first off how/where do 
I create my site configuration so that I can create clones with my own 
configuration instead of default?

Second, does CMF now support products as a package instead? If so where 
are the packages to be located for CMF and is there some sort of code 
somewhere that would exemplify an approach for moving my own products 

I see that five views are now available for default types. This is very 
exciting. How would one deal with the main portal template?

Last question has to do with formlib. Does this integration exist in 
CMF2 currently?

Sorry for so many questions but I am really pumped about the changes and 
I am anxious to begin moving things over.
