I have uploaded a pdf of how I would like to reorganize the Docs page
Grab it here:
Here are some specific things I would like to see changed:
This section should be deleted. Because for one thing everything linked
to is very, very, very old.
Instead in the PDF you will find that Online Help has been moved to the
Note: After we have revised the Docs Section we might want to think
about how we can make Zope's help system a bit more useful -- including
a direct link to the Zope Docs section (which at least I couldn't
The Zope Documentation
section should either be called Zope.org Documentation or reflect the
name and link to external resources as well. The PDF includes two

Highlights" called "Featured Articles". One is a dated list of articles
that have been published all over the web (a great idea) the other is a
series of articles written by employees of Zope Corp.
In the PDF you can see a link to ZopeMag and to a list of articles
published by companies world-wide (which should be actively
maintained). I have the feeling that outside of ZopeMag less articles
are being published these days about Zope. I'd like to figure out a way
to introduce a featured article and help drive some traffic to
publishers who write about Zope. Ideally the traffic sent their way
will encourage them to publish even more articles about Zope in the
That's it for now. Awaiting your comments.
