new.zope.org is dead for two reasons:
* it seemed to be big a project to get enough volunteer content. I
hope that microsites will avoid this problem.
* there were issues with the design, the legal terms surrounding the
design, the responsiveness of the designer and the implementation of
As a result, the zope foundation board decided to give up on this issue.
If you want to help out get a zope 2 site set up, perhaps modelled
after grok.zope.org (where we combine a Plone 3 site with sphinx), by
all means contribute! Or any other micro-site that strikes your fancy:
zodb.zope.org, for instance.
It looks like we still need to do something sane with providing a
design that isn't encumbered as the new.zope.org design was.
