This is, as others have pointed out, great stuff!

I absolutely agree.

About wiki/vs microsite, I also would hope for a microsite. Wikis are
good for community generated docs/howtos and stuff, which we already
have for Zope2. And a pretty good one at that:

Also, there is alos now the Zope2Book and Zope Developers guide on
docs.zope.org, looking good there.

But we do need a Zope2 overview site, that explains what it is and how
to get started, and has links to all of the above places. I assume
that's what you intend to create?

A similar site should be created for Zope 3, and then we should trash
the current Zope org for a new frontpage that basically only points to
the different microsites.
