I am creating an entirely new tree of packages for Zope 2.7.3+ and
Plone 2.0.5, and adding more packages daily.  However, Zope has two
pre-releases in progress (2.7.4b1 and 2.8.0a1), and given a recent
advisory, I would expect a new release in halfway short order.  For
this reason, I have been hesitant to start the process to place these
versions in pkgsrc, only to have to update them in a few weeks, just
as they were making it into pkgsrc.  In the meantime, you can preview
my working versions via cvsweb at:

If you would like a tarball of these packages, drop me an email
message directly and I will see about making one available.

BTW...rather than update zope25-*, these packages are going into
directories of the form of zope2-*, and I have a meta-package for
zope2 along  with a package for zope27 which will cause the installed
packages to have names such as zope27-CMFPlone-2.0.5.
