Just had a look at Zope with both of these recently. Postgres still has (by default) an 8K row limit; waiting on 7.1 for that to go away - this is likely to cause problems with web-based content control, I 'spose. Also there are three Zope/postgres adaptors, and I'm not very convinced by any of them. MySQL support in Zope seems much more polished. I'm also highly dubious about Zope's role-based security. It feels a bit like sendmail to me* - evolved rather than designed; no guarantees of security. jan * in a bizarre "history of obscure security problems" kinda way -- jan grant, ILRT, University of Bristol. http://www.ilrt.bris.ac.uk/ Tel +44(0)117 9287163 Fax +44 (0)117 9287112 RFC822 jan.grant at bris.ac.uk I shave with Occam's Razor.
