I don't know, while some people (including, at least, myself) will be
unavailable during Easter to do any Debian work, others might rather
have lots of time because of it being a holiday and no daytime job being
in the way. Having this change done before easter will leverage both
groups of people.
But I don't care about the exact timing, but I do think we should really
do this sooner rather than later, to get things going. Therefore, I'd
like to urge you to simply do the move, and have anyone interested help
out fixing up all the packages that get broken by it and need an update.

Can you please be more specific? And/or reply to the REJECT mail, as it
states at the bottom of every reject? That way, all the info is at hand
for us ftp-people to look into it. I can't find any NEW reject for
zope2.anything during the whole of 2006. At least listing the exact
filename of the .changes is already very useful to find the upload
you're talking about.
