I subscribe to the ZDP list. I haven't contributed anything yet.

However, what I was somewhat specifically refering to was the official
Zope docs, the guides, et al. I don't know of the availability of those
docs via cvs. There was mention of such possibility at one point, but
haven't seen it since.

I haven't yet gotten around to looking at the ZDP docs much yet. I think
it would be nice if there were more of a central repository of Zope
docs. Docs, how-tos, etc. are currently pretty scattered. The search
facility on the Zope site at least the last time I looked didn't allow
much access to the metadata of the documents. On the ZDP list I had a
brief discussion with Alex Ratti (sp?) about this concerning the
organization of his 'all how-tos' pdf.

Right now it is difficult to put your hands on all of the material on
any given subject. Being able to mine the knowledge of others better and
easier would make the attainment of ZZen much easier. If that can be
said. :)
