Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-260) Zope Public License v2 compatibility with the Apache License.

compatibility with the Apache license.
> I have searched the LEGAL JIRA, but found no mention of Zope. I have also searched the
legal-discuss@ archives, but without much success. It seems that zope python packages are
used by a few projects, which makes me hopeful, but I would love to get a more definitive
