"More stable" doesn't make any sense in this context. Zope 3.2 is a
stable release, just as much as Zope 2.9 is. "Stable" is hard to
measure. I *think* I know what you mean, but there are other definitions
of "stable" out there. So let's not get into this discussion.

My 2 cents:

* We have three products. Zope 2, the CMF, and Zope 3. They deserve
equal recognition as they have their own strengths.

* We have a lot of Zope-related *technology*, most of which comes in
fact from Zope 3 nowadays. This, not the products, should be the focus
of any "pushing". Zope technology is innovative, drives Python forward
and can be reused perfectly well outside Zope.

IMO all it takes is getting those two points across.
