In fact, I started an effort to document this, but I want more help
from this group.  I had announced two book projects to this list earlier.
The first one was a failure [1], but the second one I succeded with
help from you all [2].  I am going to re-start the first effort
again, I hope this time it will be a success :)

The new book, "Web Application Development Using Python and
Zope Components" will be available from here:

I welcome all of you to join this effort here: 
You can create branches there (no need to become a member - just a
launchpad.net login would be enough)
