Good to hear ;-)

The biggest reason for this is that newbies and end users will probably not understand the way the queues are laid out and more often than not will throw stuff in the wrong place.

Guest can't send bugs, or they can ? Because we could eventually setup a
guest or anonymous account that can post, and see if it works or not.

If not, well...

delete * from requests where user="anonymous" ;-)

As soon as someone with basic zope knowledge will understand the rt
schema, we will be able to insert data in rt from zope, and of course to
extract data also.

I guess I could help there. What could help more, is to have someone
giving some example sql to insert a request, and to retrieve for example
the 5 latest requests in a particular queue. Then we could add it in
zope without problem. 

We also need someone to install the proper db connector in zope for

Who could install postgresql connector on zope?
