I certainly recognize your contribution in that regard Chris. But as 
stupid as it is people still repeat the comment
that their isn't a lot of documentation for Zope. I am not advocating a 
link to beehive, nor to Py or any other of our
other activities -- I am advocating a link to a valid and useful Zope 
related documentation site

Take for example


it is run by us but we created it out of sheer frustration that the 
community repeatedly tried to do something similar
and failed. we consider a weekly summary to be really important. weekly 
zopemag isn't perfect but we put out about 10x more issues than the 
previous attempts. is it less useful just because it is put out by a 
company (at a significant loss i might add)?

I tried above.
