What I really need for working with Zope

Abracadabra, PropertyTools, Mailboxer - they moved to http://www.iungo.org/products. I can't praise them enough. In my opinion Maik wrote the stuff exactly in the way Zope2 was ment to be used. I like it a lot, use them all the time. Skins - a varation of the SkinnedFolder , as seen in CMF. It gives you a transparent folder for skins, and also DirectoryViews, meaning that you can put your templates into the filesystem, managed by svn. I got my version from zwarehouse , and modified it slightly so that it treats metadata correctly - Skins.tgz .
