Sorry, but AFAIK crossposting is frowned upon on these lists, so I
removed the general zope list (since cmf is at the center of my
attention at the moment).

Neither am I, just for the records.

On many mailing lists it is good practice to send a short summary of the
solutions received as answers to a question posted to the list.  I think
this is a viable method for a number of reasons. 

The most important reason is: If I mail a question to the list, I have
an urgent problem that I cannot for whatever reason solve on my own. If
I can derive a solution from the answers, there is an instant feeling of
gratefulness and a (varying) desire to give something back to the
community that so generously helped me to overcome my problem. So I'm
more motivated than if I worked out something on my own.

Since I have learned a lot from just reading this great list I volunteer
to be a collector and organizer of solutions.

> But where and how?

I'm open to any suggestion. For a start some FAQ-like setup would IMHO
be most appropriate and I'd be happy to build and provide a site for
that. But there are certainly many websites that are already established
for purposes very similar to this one. 

Happy zopeing,
