[Zope3-dev] Please don't use svn.zope.org urls in distutils homepage urls

Aha! After reading this message now I finally understand the reason I
can't browse svn.zope.org with my Nokia N800[1] anymore.

This used to be quite useful since I could read lots of *.txt documents
from zope3 and related projects just before sleeping. I wish I could do
it again.

I've setup an Apache server just to see what user-agent my device is
giving and this is what came out from the log: - - [24/Aug/2007:11:00:32 +0200] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 403 3926
"-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; X11; Linux armv6l; U) Opera 8.5
[es_ES] Tablet browser 0.0.14 RX-34_2007SE_4.2007.26-8"

So please, adjust the Apache configuation so N800 users can browse the
repository again.

Thanks in advance
