Obviously, Zope does not know the directive "role" in the "zope" namespace.

The reason might be that the Zope ZCML registry is not set up properly.

In a Zope2 environment (such as apparently yours), the ZCML registry
set up is significantly extended by "Five".
Therefore, it is vital that "site.zcml" first includes the zcml configuration
for "Products.Five". Only after that all typical ZCML features are
