Thanks guys, that's too bad. new.zope.org was Purdy™ (pretty). In any
event, I think I understand the "micro sites" approach (divide
and conquer) but where does that leave zope.org? FWIW I think the
grok site is is very nice, and I would love to see a similar site 
for zope.org. 

I am also very interested in "cleaning up the mess" on
zope.org. So if I could contribute in some way to upgrading and
cleaning up the current Plone 1 site (I assume from http://zope.org/help)
that would be my preference.

IOW, if anyone is interested in a Plone 3.2 zope.org with the content 
cleaned up a bit, I would love to help. By cleaned up I mean:

    - Upgrade to Plone 3
    - Edit or remove stale content.
    - Point to microsites as needed (e.g. Zope2.zopyx, grok.zope.org, docs.zope.org, etc.)

Any takers? ;-)
