I'm glad to see the news of our Zope development made it to /usr/lib/info. :-)
The library has been one of the prime movers behind Duke's move toward CMS for web management, and one of the strongest advocates for consideration of open source systems in general and Zope in particular. We're glad about the way things have worked out, though it's taken a lot of time for things to get rolling.
So far we've only been using Zope internally for Squishdot sites, wikis, and other intranet type applications. We're currently beginning the learning process for Zope Corp's CMS product, which they are customizing for higher ed (as described in the announcement linked above), and plan to begin migrating our current web site into the Zope CMS in the spring.
I'll plan to update this group with news as we make progress, and feel free to e-mail me if you have particular questions about what we're doing.
