I think it's also important to:
* base our packages on whatever Zope 3.4 is.

I just added a bullet point, but I agree with that basic approach. It
should be a release to offer a stable platform, and then we should open
the floodgates again to great new developments.

I would very much like the new website to be present when we release
1.0. A release of 1.0 goes along with a lot of noise. It's a great big
PR opportunity. The better our website is to receive potential new users
the better PR we can do.

I'd conservatively estimate sometime in february myself. I do have some
time in january to help.
