Of course, if that were to happen, there would have to be a migration.

There would be VERY limited things an individual could upload.  I
personally argued strongly for 0 membership on this site.  If the ideas
of micro sites went forward, the appropriate micro sites could allow (or
not) membership as necessary.

Devil's in the details.  I would presume all software could be retained
in some manner forever.  ??  I'd personally like to see a community
member step up and write a kick ass Zope software site - dedicated to
community software packages.  If that didn't happen, maybe we can
migrate software packages to sourceforge if the 'owners' are MIA?

For the site I refer to, only that which meets the scope of the site.
Again, I'd love to see community members step up for the areas which are
necessary for supporting things which Lennart refers to.  I personally
don't think those sites need to be official Zope (Foundation).  I think
Zope Labs is an excellent site which fills some of this niche.  A Zope
Foundation site should not compete where the community excells already
in my opinion.

I don't disagree with Lennart, just possibly who 'runs' it.
