I agree with Chris and I hope that we will get NZO
done in the near future with the help of Sidnei from
the community side and Guido on the ZC side. There
has been too much wasted effort in the past on this
project without results. I remember that Jens and I
worked very hard on migration issues and a new product
for software releases in the summer of 2001...it has
been a bit frustrating to see that this work did not
bring NZO forward. We all know that we *need* a new
zope.org because current.zope.org sucks like hell.

I am pretty sure there are enough people in the community
willing to contribute. As an example, the German Zope
User Group (www.dzug.org) built its web site during some
month. Ok...the site is not as complex as zope.org but people
are willing to contribute if they can see results and they
don't like to work in an ancient working environment (...all
these tiny textareas everywhere on zope.org ;-)).
