I didn't mean these were "wrong" approaches; I think they make sense. I
think the "wrong" way is to have duplication of effort where one is
easily confused as the de facto authoritative source. A prime example
is the zope book. People come to zope.org and find a zope book there.
"We", i.e. the communinity, know that chris is hosting the zope book.
So confusion and chaos arise. In these duplication spaces, I would
remove all existence of the one and point to that which is the
authority. Maybe have a mirror process setup. Not certain of the exact
solution at this point.....just expressing my position.
