It's clearly the case that people who are reading this thread know how
to avoid download.zope.org. The people who are not reading this thread
just get "tough luck" from the Zope community when their software
doesn't work anymore. They're left to find this thread. I think that's
one reason the Zope community has so much trouble growing.
