Zope 2 was never a brand. It only existed to have a name for the older
application server when Zope 3 existed. It led to confusion and still
does. The name must go away. It is now the only application server with
the "Zope" name left, and that's a simple, clear and consistent brand.
We can help make the Zope 2 name go away by stopping its use on
"official" community sites like the new zope.org.
