My initial reaction was: "Oh no, we're not ready enough to do that".

Then I thought: "Hmmm, let's do it anyway, it might 'force' us to get 
our act together a bit more quickly when it is actually online" :-)

Since I'm not sure yet who to access for DNS changes in the *.zope.org 
domain, I propose to do this slightly different:

* step one:

http://grok.zope.org/new ---> points to the "new", Sphinx-bases site.

http://grok.zope.org/ ---> continues to point to the current site.

* step two:

we get together on IRC soonish (I'll start a "doodle"), we agree on what 
we need to do to get potential blockers for switching to the sphinx site 
out of the way. [1]

* step three:

we do what we need to do to get these blockers resolved.

* step four:

http://grok.zope.org ---> points to the sphinx bases setup

http://grok.zope.org/old ---> continues to point to the plone setup for 
while, helping us to migrate interesting content piece by piece.

* step five:

profit? ;)
