Which looks great, methinks. And an advertising Site for Zope should look
exciiting, as ror and other hyped frameworks have shown already.

Hmm. I agree that it is a good Idea, to improve zope.org quickly and I think
that this way looks promising. However, such **interim** Solutions tend to last
longer than they are expected to last. We should be aware that this interim
Solution may be there for a couple of years.

Good Idea - there is so much outdated content there.

+1 if the old stuff is still accessible and if any noob can see that this is old

Yes that ist an important point. If you acknowledge content contributors they
(and maybe others) will more likely keep on contributing. The documentation Area
on plone.org shows the authors picture for tutorials - I believe that there are
quite a few people out there which will be motivated by a small photo + text
which recognises the author...
