I piggyback on Geoff's insightful post and say the same thing about 
Zwiki. It's bad marketing for the project I'm trying to grow here, 
forgetting about Zope for a moment.

I mailed Rob and Jim directly offering to help with an upgrade. They are 
the only people I know who could unblock the red tape that keeps 
zope.org static. No response (under their radar, I expect).

So where does this leave us ? Isn't it time to fork zope.org ? Not in 
the destructive bad-feeling sense. I mean isn't it up to we the 
community to get organized, get focussed and build what we really want, 
prove with running code and *happy users* that it works, and then come 
back to see if Zope corp. wants to point zope.org there ? I don't expect 
one such attempt will be enough, there should be several. I've done it 
once at zopewiki.org. I'd love to see some plone-based visions of zope.org.
