I believe the reason of your frustration comes from the fact there are probably 
not so many people who fully understand the whole release process, the kgs, the 
buildout, how things are scattered into all these eggs, and all the technology 
surrounding the transition that zope is going through.
I'm not here for a long time and I had to spend hours reading docs and searching 
every single bit of information in the svn.

The transition seems now achieved and the most important thing is to have a 
dedicated web site with clear information, so that there are new users, and new 
contributors. When someone goes to the zope.org homepage, there is nothing about 
zope3, just a single link in the left menu. I've heard that some people have 
started working on a new web site. Who is doing that job, what is the current 
status, and what can we do to help?
