You do not get the point. What Till was trying to indicate is that
while we are criticising Zope for not migrating to Python 2.5 over the
last 9 months, Fedora has not been able to mention their dropping of
Zope in the release notes.

Now, the question that arises is whether porting Zope to Python 2.5 is
easier, or mentioning Zope's inability to do so and the consequences
thereof in the release notes is easier? Or was the decision to drop
Zope was taken too late to be included in the release notes?

This is only applicable for last minute decisions. As far as I
understand, the decision to drop Zope, Plone and Python 2.4 was a
strategic decision. If it was a last minute one too, then it is indeed
very sad.
