Yes, bad, I agree completely. I've tried to induce people to create a
proper website for the ZODB for years now, but with limited uccess.

I'll note that this is the best hope we have to get a proper ZODB site
at some point:


It's a sphinx site so pretty easy to manage, and it actually does
provide a lot of useful content. It just has a bad home page. If it
could be spruced up and perhaps labeled zodb.zope.org, or zodb.org,
we'd get somewhere.
