No, but a message in the mailing list told that the warning
for Python 2.2 usage has been removed (search the archives).
What difference makes it whether it is official or not?
There is a known issue with Zope and Python 2.2 usage:
In Python 2.2, elementary data types have docstrings.
As a consequence, some attributes of Zope objects (e.g.
"manage_options") may be read by direct Web access.
Some think this were a security concern.
