I guess that's up to Zope Corp to decide but I was under the impression that
Zope.org was mainly for the community and that this would be done under the
auspices and for the beneift of and by the community; well, mainly anyway.

This is interesting but personally I see this as a more webloggish type
project. that's just my personal preference. Perhaps your topics could be
subject areas for the weblog?

If we get 20 people who can contribute a 30 minutes per week, then that 10
hours per week of man-hours. not too bad.
