That's a good point. We do visit "their" conferences though, since
that is to a large extent the PyCons. Only Django has their own
conference afaik. But just as they can learn from the Zope community
we obviously can learn from them. And a good example of this was
Wicherts talk "Lessons from other frameworks" on this years PloneConf,
which I unfortunately missed, as I had another talk at the same time).
