When I saw this, it got me clearly confused because at first I thought
that it was related to http://zim-wiki.org/. It's a bit unfortunate that
"Zim" is used to refer to two projects reladed to "wikis".

I don't know who was first but maybe you could point out the nameclash
to upstream ?

FWIW the "zim" debian package refers to http://zim-wiki.org/ which I'm
maintaining for Debian.
