Hmm. There are both positive and negative aspects in regards to
Zope. On the positive side it might be able to replace Apache and
it would leverage the already discussed Python. On the negative side
it is fairly complex and hefty... 18MB in /usr/local/www/Zope.
The real question in regards to zope is... has anyone on our list
used it and if you have, what is your opinion on using it to write
an installer and/or package manager? Also, does it have a complete
enough web server to completely replace Apache or would it be better
to run it *under* Apache?
Zope is a full web server, so it could replace apache. In production
situations, it is usually hidden behind a proxy (typical application
server type design). But since speed is not really an issue here, that
would be unnecessary.
The problem with Zope is that it is fairly complex. But it does have a
ton of cool features.
Since I'm still getting a handle on what you have in mind, I can't
comment on whether Zope or apache is better suited.
