Hi Michael,

First of all, you have reached the maintainers of Zope.org; questions about
Zope itself are best asked on the mailinglists or on the #zope IRC channel
on irc.zope.org. For the lists, see:


As for changing the root entry point for FTP; I do believe this is possible,
as I know that www.freezope.org has managed this for their account holders;
your root folder is based on your login name to FTP. I belive they use a VHM
and a access rule for this. Your best bet is to ask on the zope@zope.org
list and CC the post to ivo@amaze.nl; he implemented the trick.
