I might atribute any decline in this list to one of several things:

1. Documentation has much improuved, thus people can look up the answers
and not soly rely on this list.
        - Zope Book specificaly.
        - Training clases.
2. Many of the people are now way past the general skill level in this
list and have lost interest.
3. Alt. sources of info like: irc.zope.net #Zope

It's obvious when you see companies like www.cbsnewyork.com runing zope
that it is gaining in market penetration.
