As attractive the idea may be of everyone switching to Zope 3 right  
away -- it is essential that the thousands of Zope 2.x server out  
their still receive some kind of documentation support.

So while it may be true that the documentation is out of date -- this  
should then be a priority to do a "final" update of the 2.x docs and  
then focus on all things Zope 3.

Legacy Zope apps are going to be around for the next 3 to 10 years.
