Our GSoC Student Ranjith Kannikara has already started making progress on his effort to get Zope 2 running atop of Python 2.5.
As for myself, I've managed to compile and start Zope trunk on Python 2.5, and just the fact it starts up fine is very assuring.
To help Ranjith, and to keep track of progress myself I have set up a buildbot that will be running the tests twice a day. The results look promising. But I'm skipping some tests (ZODB, ZConfig and ZEO).
Lastly, we are still in the process of getting Ranjith commit access to svn.zope.org. He already submitted the documentation, and now he just has to submit his ssh keys.
I've invited Ranjith to post to this blog, which he says he will be doing frequently.
That's it for this week. See you next friday!
