If there was more community effort involved in zope.org then I would agree.
At the moment, we get our user area and we get to make comments on the site
(with which we often get good feedback). It's good that you guys are open
about it, it just seems a little strange to me. Traffic is low, so its not
really a problem, just a comment.
