Zope cant maintain a friggin web site? Isnt that rich.
Cool, thanks so much for volunteering to provide all the resources,
coders and support staff to look after a 10,000 user site with all the
problems that entails.
Oh? What's that? You weren't volunteering?
Personally I have not visited zope.org for a few years for anything
other than releases. And I am a long time pro developer.
It seems pretty obvious these days that having a one-shop zope.org site
is too ambitious. Perhaps even wrong guided.
I wouldn't even know what should be on it. Zope 2 development mostly
means Plone these days. Plone has a great site already, so no reason to
do to much about that.
Pure Zope 3 is in even less use than pure Zope 2.
The exciting stuff is going on in Five and 2-3 integration. But why the
heck make a site about that?
You could say that zope has been beaten by its own success.
The only sensible approach I can see is to make a new zope.org with
releases, installation guides etc. It should also showcases the great
cms/applications that are build on top of it. With links to those sites.
On those individual sites there are lots of documentation, product
releases programming tricks etc.
Eg. I develop in Plone, and practically all I knew about programming in
pure Zope 2 is useless now that I am using UML/AT/AGX in Plone. It's
like assembly language to a python programmer. I assume that it is the
same for other frameworks.
Having a 'Products' section on zope.org probably doesn't even make sense
anymore. It is simply to low level.
Drop all the old documentation and move it to old.zope.org. Just in
cases there is a nugget somewhere.
