Gotta agree with this :(

ZDP is currently undergoing a lot of development and unfortunately I
have to agree that it isn't there yet...

Unfortunately, no-one is getting paid to do it, and everyone who is
working on it would probably get fired if they spent enough time on it
to REALLY get the job done...

I reckon there's about 25 man weeks of work to do based on 5 people
-1 week to build the tools
-1 week to plan the structure of the documentation
-3 weeks to get ALL the Zope documentation linked in one place (which is
what zdp is supposed to be...)

So, has anyone got the cash? ;-)

Once this is done, it will be less work to keep that documentation up to
date. Hopefully, eventually, all documentation would end up on
zdp.zope.org and not just be linked from it...

I agree here too :(

Send them to [EMAIL PROTECTED], in fact, better still, JOIN [EMAIL PROTECTED] and
go and make the changes yourself :-)

Good luck, I think you're (or should that be 'we're all') going to need
