I'm not in charge of the zope.org project, but this is a good
question. I've cc-ed Martin.

I'm on the fence on this one. I think as long as the site *says* it's
affiliated with the Zope project, the Zope community and the
foundation, we're fine. You can argue both directions here: we might
even *help* send the message to people that the Zope community is
actually serious about providing stuff useful to outsiders.

I propose we let the naming discussion rest for now given the
arguments have been made. The most important thing is the creation of
a website.
