The problem here seems to be that you are trying to do XML-RPC communication 
with a version of Zope that doesn't support XML-RPC out of the box. You 
should use a version >= 2.4.0 to get this to work. From the output you sent 
below, it looks like you're trying to invoke an RPC method call against 
Zope.org? As far as I can tell, Zope.org (for some odd reason) is STILL 
running on that very same version -> Zope/Zope 2.3.2 (source release, python 
1.5.2, linux2) ZServer/1.1b1 on Linux, so is not XML-RPC enabled, either. 
Trying to invoke a request will return a site error.

On that thought, I'd like to see Zope.org become much more modern, and 
reflect the *latest* and *greatest* functionality of Zope. Deprecation of the 
hybrid PTK that's used, as well as updating and polishing of the site 
regularly. In fact, I'd like to see more of a portal feel to it, that's both 
personalized and customized to my needs. For instance, log into my account, 
download 2.5.1b1, come back a week later and here's a big notice that beta2 
is available for *my* setup. Also, can we see some Web services? Imagine, in 
the management interface, and visiting the Control Panel. There is an 
"Update" tab, which when loaded queries zope.org with the XML-RPC method
"zope.webservices.getUpdates(my_install)", which passes in my server's 
version, installed products, etc. and lists updates, hotfixes, and other 
notices. With the flexibility and dynamic runtime nature of Python, i wonder 
how hard it would be to update a running server.

Anybody working on this or interesting in seeing this kind of feature? I 
envision something along the lines of Redhat Network, WindowsUpdate, or 
Ximian Red Carpet. When visiting Zope.org, this information would be updated, 
so users would have profiles that store this data. This could be a great 
start to get new.zope.org up and running. Sounds like I'm volunteering myself 
if it creates a large demand... :^)
