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.
