I set up a skeleton, based on the structure I proposed a couple days ago, at
It contains only a single document of content, Tom's Zope page, which is cloned
at http://zdp.zope.org/guide/introduction/starting

There's no link from the ZDP home page until other folks look at it (plus it's
just a shell!)

Let's hear what folks think and then start populating it.  I think there's room
and need for some serious organizational and classification discussion, (or we
can charge ahead and assume there will be rework).

I had that fantasy too, about would O'Reilly publish a collectively authored
work?  Then I realized - no publisher will be interested until they believe
they'll sell several thousand copies.  So let's spread the gospel, then we can
sell it!  Or give it away! :^)
