I hope we can move to a pattern where projects gain a homepage somewhere

Yep, me too. Sigh, I have to get to work again on the software site.
It could be argued that, given existing tools like pypi and launchpad,
that we should focus on other things.
I think that we should look into leveraging pypi as much as possible,
but that from a perspective of a project having a face and marketing it
to developers, it's important that at least the larger projects have a
homepage on zope.org.
The larger projects also will need a documentation presence larger than
what can be comfortably stuffed into PyPi. Tutorials, etc.
I also consider it very important that we have at least a *list* on
zope.org of zope 3 projects. :)
Stephan also worked hard on giving an idea of quality/maturity
indication for Zope 3 projects. While I think we should go carefully
with this, and definitely introduce such quality metrics gradually, I
think that presenting *some* of this information to the public could be
valuable over time. This cannot be presented on PyPi, so this is again
an argument for a presence on zope.org.
That said, please continue using PyPi and I also don't mind using
launchpad more; I definitely don't want to block anyone. I just consider
it important to consider project identity. Having an identity can go a
long way in creating a *community* around the software.
