Both postgres and mysql are installed on moria however the adaters need
to be installed for zope and the databases need to be created also. I
would prefer the use of postgres over mysql because of row level locking
and transactions. It also tends to be a good bit more stable. I can
install both but I am not entirely sure what is required right now to
setup the databases. How are you planning to handle versions in the
relation database? With postgres zope will manage the transactions
automaticaly and cache the connections which makes things easier then it
normally would be.
