And in that case we end up with two sites, one on Zope.org, and it's
own, as with Grok. That is very bad.

Nothing prevents us from having consistent styling and consistent
structure between the different microsites, and also, having it all on
zope.org doesn't mean that we have consistent structure either.

No. Is there a zope.org for these? No, not really. Microsites makes it
possible to upgrade things one at a time, as necessary, instead of
creating monumental zope.org upgrade projects that ultimately fail in
creating a useful zope.org. We've already tried and failed twice. Lets
learn from that experience.

Why would this be a difference between microsites and not microsites?
As far as I can see it doesn't affect who does it or what they do at
