It now is, thanks to some people finally finishing the static apidoc. http://apidoc.zope.org > But I think we *also* need the API published on Zope.org, for a few > advantages that the apidoc tool will never be able to give us: > > - we need to be able to use Google to search the API documentation > (even if the apidoc search worked perfectly, which it doesn't) How does a published APIDOC version not fulfill this requirement? > - we need to be able to collaborate with comments and examples to the docs; I do not think that an API reference should contain comments and examples. That's the role of other documentation. In fact, I believe reference documentation should *always* be autogenerated, otherwise information-rot is guaranteed. > The second point is really crucial.
