The fact that it might be possible to fix some of that (especially the 
many POSKeyErrors showing in the log) is no excuse - they should not 
have been there to begin with.

It comes down to a matter of time/money that is spent on two different 

- keep fixing the broken old version and get people to work on a 
strange mix of software running on a damaged ZODB

- build a new one from scratch with maintainability in mind.

If you really think about what zope.org has in terms of features it's 
not all that much. Building the same on top of CMF 1.5 probably won't 
take a whole lot of effort.
