Hi !

There are some changes to the Zope Portal at 


All Subjects and Topics are now either signed as recommended
or not.

For transparency, the listing of subjects and topics now
has an indication on how many user contributed items have
been added.

Subjects and Topics also have a new guideline on top:

   If you have a comment or suggestion on the Subject/Topic, add a Comment.

   You may use the predefined searches to find further information in
   external search engines. If you find something that may be of value
   for others, return to this Topic, and share it with the Zope community.

never  met, on projects that  are in  a constant state  of flux,  on 
a time schedule  that would  cause a  hummingbird's  head to  spin."
