Jup, and Hanno and I reST-ified the Z2 docs folder yesterday so we
can use Sphinx for generating HTML/PDF.

The first goal is bringing a site up in order to get people
away from the old zope.org site and providing basic technical
documentation etc. Since I am only an average
technical write and definitely not a story-teller, I will focus on the
technical stuff (in the hope people contributing pieces for the Zope
'evangelism' part of the site).

Basically yes. I don't think it is a good idea to recommend any particular
Zope framework on the front-page. Instead each individual project should
make clear its own focus and strength. Perhaps it is not the best
approach for giving n00bs an answer to "wtf is Zope? What shall I use".
So I agree that the front-page should be in some way neutral, not
selling a particular Zope project but leading you directly to the
different projects. This approach does not require much discussion and
fighting between the individual projects and each project can represent
itself. It is hard getting all the people under one hood - so the
microsite approach looks reasonable for me. I think this worked out
pretty well for grok.zope.org (which is really a useful site).
