I will not touch zope.org, but I would be willing to do some serious 
work on a new zope3.org site.

There is so much content on Zope org, and I actually think that it 
presents Zope 2 reasonably well. So changing it will not be worth the 
effort. The broken links and lost content will probably be a net loss.

Presenting Zope 3 on a new site on the other hand would give a lot of 
bang for the buck.

Though my own site doesn't really reflect it ;-) I am actually capable 
of doing pretty solid layouts, and I would be willing to do a prototype. 
I have +10 years experience in advertising. I could host the prototype 
for development on zope3.mxm.dk until it gets aproval.

I am also doing screencasts on a regular basis for customers, and have a 
solid setup for that. Like pro audio gear etc. I would be willing to do 
those presentations. Btw. "Macromedia Captivate" is a great tool for the 

One obvious question though. Shouldn't this be a "dogfood" project. It 
would have some sense to let the site be hosted in Zope Cubed itself.
