[Zope3-Users] Is zope3 dead?

No. Just the "zope3" package is not released anymore. Now there's a
bunch of eggs on PyPI, providing some functionality, like
zope.component or zope.app.catalog. Some of core packages are mature
enough, so there aren't much new releases of them, but other (like
ZODB or z3c.form) are developed very actively. So Zope3 is alive and
rocking :)

There's certainly a problem with the website/documentation. IIRC,
there was a project to redesign zope.org website to make it more
friendly and informative, but people are quite busy so it looks
stalled. Also, it would be great if people wrote more articles and
updated current docs though, but it isn't the case currently. :-(
