You can use http://dev.zope.org/Zope3/FAQ.  As long as Zope 3 is in 
development mode, I don't see what's wrong with that one.  
Unfortunately, since it's just a redirector, the URL's get expanded 
quickly to the big long ones.  But you can share those abbreviated 
URL's just fine.  I'm not sure if I want to add anything that would be 
doing any URL rewriting - particularly if it requires any support from 
Apache, unless we want to set up a subdomain (see below).

Yes, but it's silly that makes sense.  "Oh, a development site project 
wiki about a component architecture".  Makes more sense than some of 
those other URL's 0,123312,4,092,12.html?pt.x.r.233.af.y ;)

If you really want more than the redirector, let me know.  But the 
advantage of the redirector is that (a) it's simple, and (b), it does 
allow for sharing of any URL below the redirected point.  So 
http://dev.zope.org/Zope3/DevelCookbook is there and sharable.

I think the next best thing would be a real subdomain, zope3.zope.org.  
Or zope3.org.  There was some talk of this earlier that got shot down, 
but I'm not sure if what got shot down was the new domain, or setting 
up a whole extra server.  I'm not opposed to doing a subdomain that 
just goes into the Zope 3 wiki.  I think the concern was that we'd end 
up with another dogbowl or collector.zope.org that didn't quite match 
the rest of the "zope.org (in)experience" at a time when we should be 
unifying that experience.  But, if the subdomain is in site, like 
dev.zope.org, it *shouldn't* be a problem.
