Hi there,

I think the threads started by Sebastian have quite a bit of useful text 
we can mine and rewrite into a coherent piece of content for the grok 
site. We need to come up with a plan for doing it.

I'm going to try to coordinate some people in the hope it's welcome:

* Sebastian and Martin, can you two devise a way to go systematically 
through the threads for the texts? This should result in restructured 
text documents. Martin seems to have an eye for the lightheartedness and 
honesty we should keep in the text, so he can ensure we keep it. I'll 
also help reviewing the text.

* Sebastian, you're already working on the site, so that's excellent! :) 
I hope Martin will continue reviewing it.

* Kevin Teague, can you keep an eye on the layout being developed by 
Sebastian? I hope Sebastian doesn't banish the caveman theme too much. 
I'd like to retain some of the fun. Hopefully together with Sebastian we 
can come up with some layout elements that don't look too off-putting 
for managers, but retain the playfulness.

* Darryl, you're familiar with the website generation scripts. Once the 
layout starts shaping up and we have new restructured text files, can 
you make sure they are checked into SVN properly in the right structure, 
and then update the scripts with the new layout?

* Darryl should then be able to publish the new website in a final test 
version (somewhere else than on grok.zope.org). Once everybody is happy 
enough, we'll publish it in the real location.

Others: lots of others have been participating in the discussion. Please 
don't feel excluded because I didn't name you here. Instead jump in on 
the task you like most and let's push the website forward!
