Am in agreement to that but to a point. What software runs in the 
backgroun / is easier to maintain I leave to the people who actually
have to maintain / work with the code.

But how would you approach this? What would happen to custom things 
that are on the site. Could this for example impact the
two to three link items we need for the doc section.

If its only two people who decide what and how a new zope.org is set up 
than that would rub many the wrong way.
Especially when their is not just interest but a commitment to help out.
