Even when Zope 3 is available in F7, Plone will not be supported. I
would expect this to be the case with other Zope projects/products too.
In response to your "use a 3rd party" direction.. that is most likely
what will happen. We all know where that leads, just look at the current
state of all the addon repos for Fedora currently. (Yes, I know there is
work to make it better and I've tried to be involved in this.) I'm all
for having things well documented as to why it's *not* there and also
want to be clear as to what I (the maintainer) have done to get the
packages supported in Fedora 7.
