Well, the last time I spoke with Paul he was very busy packing things to leave 
ZC and head to EuroZope. He told me that theres an expectation of getting NZO 
done in 4-5 months. The problem is that ZC people are very busy and then they 
hadnt taken time to setup the new boxes and finish the migration script for 
the Zope.org content.

Current status:

  * Skin: half working, but as Heimo pointed out, we could improve it a lot, 
it is too monochrome right now and too bloated.

  * Software Product (CMFPackage): I started to build this up as a product 
into the Collective project @ SF. However I hadnt finished it for a number of 

  * Sandboxes: The last time I tried to build a sandbox, I had some problems 
with CMF from CVS but they were fixed at that point. As we were fixing a lot 
of things into CMF in the last weeks, I havent tested again to see if it 
still works. 

  * ZC Boxes: I heard from someone that ZC was moving Zope.org to the new 
boxes last week. I dont know about the actual state, but if that is done, its 
a step forward for us.

I hope this helps to clear most of the issues.
