Yes, Zope is a good environment for building this kind of thing because 
it has many of the problems presented by the project already solved: 
security, safe delegation, and search.  You can cobble together some 
existing products to do issue tracking and forums.  CVSweb will need to 
stand alone likely unless you create a ZCVSWeb.
