Your position appeared to be that it's a good idea to tempt new users 
into using "plain zope 2". I assert that it's not because zope.org is 
dead, the docs have barely changed in 7 years and, in a specific case, 
LocalFS has become unmaintained and doesn't work in current Zope 2 releases.

That doesn't answer my question. What public code do you actively maintain?

Because it's broken on current Zope releases and no-one is maintaining 
it, meaning every person who wants to use it has to individually patch 
it and maintain their own local copy.
