Thank you for your input.

We are working on upgrading the site to much newer software than what 
is currently running the Zope.org.  The current Zope.org site pioneered 
a lot of Zope technologies and ideas that have found their way into 
newer software offerings, but sadly it cannot take advantage of those 
newer offerings.  That said, it's still running very well considering 
the size of its content database, community, and age.

The new development can be seen here:

Note that its content is not fresh right now either, as it's still in 
its development phase.

We don't have a featured article up on the front page (of the current 
Zope.org site) any more.  Are you referring to the section that says 
"Zope News dated Wednesday November 27"?  There is a new team of people 
working on keeping that news update more fresh than it has been 
throughout 2002, and I'm sure they made a news release fairly recently. 
  I'm not sure what they did with it though.  It could be my fault - I 
may have been expected to do something (as the Zope.org webmaster) and 
didn't catch on to the fact.
