I tried to tell this list the same thing a few days ago, I'm guessing

...yep, and I've emailed Jim direct to ask him where that Apache lives.
I'd like to stick in a rewrite rule that redirects to something like:

Perhaps you could draft the document on zope.org and I'll see if I can 
make the changes to the Apache instance?

In any case, having the document there would mean we can refer to it in
