As mentioned, no.But it's important that it is it's own site, running
it's own version of the software, so that it can be maintained
seperately without having to upgrade all of zope.org.

I understand these points, but I repeat one last time: Zope.org has
been in dire need of upgrade for more than five years. It got one in
the beginning of this, and that produced a zope.org that wasn't very
much better, and since then, nothing happened. The main reason for
failure is that it is a monolithic gigant.
Don't make that mistake again.
