Hi all,

Since we can start building our new ZDP site on version 2.01 of Zope, I had
this idea:

1. I'm already working on the ZDP Weekly news. ie. I've created a news
class and this will be used to create instances of in the zdpNews folder. A
simple dtml-method will look into this folder and then display the titels
of it onto the screen. Clicking on the link will show the full weekly news.
So, when I write a new weekly news, I just have to add a new news-instance.

2. I propose to do the same for our drafts. ie. for now, we make a seperate
folder, upload all drafts inside of them and display them. Perhaps we can
make a simple class which can contain some more information, to sort the
drafts a little bit. ie. Chapter, version, ...., authors email address
Thus once, some dtml methods are created, the drafts only have to be
uploaded in one folder and some extra info has to be included, that's it.
With the email-address, people can directly send comments to the author.

3. We also need some sort of status page for members (don't have an idea
about this yet)

4. About ZCL...? I don't know how we can make this more flexible
