The Foundation

The Zope Foundation

The Zope Foundation had the goal to promote, maintain, and develop the Zope platform, which it did successfully for many years. It is merging with the Plone Foundation and passed its responsibilities to the Plone Foundation in 2018.

The Plone Foundation

Our community includes the open source community of contributors to the Zope software, contributors to the documentation and web infrastructure, as well as the community of businesses and organizations that use Zope.

The Plone Foundation is the copyright holder of the Zope software and many extensions and associated software maintained in the zopefoundation GitHub organization at

The Plone Foundation also manages the website as well as supporting infrastructure for open source collaboration.
