How are you defining a 'zope-web'?  I don't think there is such a 
collective noun at the moment.  Is it any site about Zope?

You are dead right, a front-page funnel for this effort would really 
help in continuing and increasing community participation.

ZopeZen does an excellent job of news, too, and we've discussed on IRC 
how we could best make use of it.  My only concern about these kinds of 
things was that they are efforts of individuals, so if those individuals 
changed jobs / moved to patagonia / whatever, we'd lose important parts 
of the community.  Perhaps this would be something to worry about when 
it occured though.
