I was just working on this suggestion after I noticed it in the
original email, when I got this one. The Home page intro text has now
I've put the Grok Campfire image on the About page, added a sidebar
with a quote and the Zope 3 logo, and added a link to the Zope 3 wiki
for the first mention of Zope 3.
This puts the About page a bit out-of-sync with SVN. Three ways to
1. I need to get access to svn.zope.org. Do I just fill out the
contrib agreement and mail it in?
2. Someone with SVN access backports my changes ...
3. I work on a dynamically generated Grok site, where the content

On the About page I was thinking about an image for "Grok is Agile"
where Grok is leaping onto a wooly mammoth. Grok images for the
tutorial would be great too. Some ideas:
"Setting up grokproject" - Grok building his club, maybe pounding
spikes into it
"A View for a Model" - Grok looking at his reflection at his
"Storing data" - Grok storing mammoth meat in a cache
