I think the website is one of the huge impediments to joining the Zope
community.  When you compare zope.org to all the other web framework
websites like django, turbogears, and RoR, it is pretty clear why
people aren't drawn to Zope 3.  Isn't it something of a disgrace that
the website for a powerful web application framework is as outdated as
zope.org?  People don't move to zope for the same reason you wouldn't
hire an interior designer who has an ugly house.  If things don't
really get moving on this front in the near future, it might be a good
idea to make zope.org a summer of code project.  Would anyone else
like to start a new discussion thread on the topic of zope.org?  I
sure would.
