I'm sorry if it looked like I don't care. It does matter to me that
people coming to Zope 3 need information. However, that doesn't remove
the justification for the existing project management resources.

Steve pointed out some functions of launchpad and maybe those can take
over those responsibilities in the future.

I don't have a clear answer for this. I personally appreciate that you
are investing effort and contribute.

About your challenge: Maybe we do not have to use the Zope 3 development
wiki to provide users/developers with information how to use Zope 3.
Maybe the Zope 3 wiki in the future can become the place if we start
using launchpad. I agree that we want to separate the concerns and don't
have people looking for documentation about using Zope 3 end up in the
depth of the development proposals. (However, implemented proposals
should be a reasonable source of documentation for their scope!)
