This is unfortunately what has made zope.org close to useless. These  
personal documents aren't moderated or maintained så the amount of  
outdated and sometimes inaccurate documentation (not to mention dead  
links...) is very high.

I would say, only moderated content on the website, except for  
(spambot secured) comments perhaps.

I would rather have a couple of editors who made sure that the site  
maintains quality (that said, anybody should be able to make changes  
that are submitted to the editorial workflow).

Less is more. I would rather see (less) high quality docs on the  
grok.zope.org site than (more) low quality. In this case high quality  
== maintainable.

I agree that one should be open to the idea of making it a one stop  
shop, but I believe it should evolve into this, rather than grasp all  
of it up front.
