I disagree. Very much. Note that we are not forcing everyone to use this new site; it is perfectly possible for projects to setup their own site. There are disadvantages to that that should be considered: you loose the consistency of a central site with a consistent structure, you loose the consistent image & styling and possibly make it harder for people to find something. For grok it does work since it has people actively making sure it has an excellent user experience. But where is the ZODB site? The Zope2 site? The Zope3 site? The CMF site? None of those have their own site (there are some user-unfriendly wikis but I would not call those sites) and we should not be asking them to make one.
