Zope does have several big disadvantages:
- it cannot be used offline efficiently.
Staying online while editing anything is EXPENSIVE in most
- it does not support CSCW concepts in a reasonable way.
Whenever two or more people are trying to edit a text at the same
time, Zope discards the changes of anyone but one.
- it is far from errorproof.
Whenever a connection gets broken when trying to send the contents
back, the missing part of the contents is clipped and cannot be
recovered by itself. (it happened to me)
I suggest we use CVS instead of Zope.
CVS can be used offline; work is not lost even when more than one
people are working on the same document at the same time; CVS is
errorproof; and things can be automated with CVS, on server-side as
well as on client-side.
