Hi all,

As some of you may know already, we've been hard at work building a new
iteration of the Zope.org community website, one based on the CMF.

This is an invitation to come and have a look at what we are doing for the
new Zope.org server, and have a good kick at the tires. The idea is to get
solid feedback from the community to iron out all the wrinkles and bugs that
undoubtedly will be in there. You can find the server at:


Please note however, that this is an early preview, and there are several
known issues:

  - If you had a login on Zope.org about 2 months ago, chances are that you
    won't have to create a new account on new.zope.org; the LDAP database
    backing the site uses a 2-month old export. If you changed your password
    but not your email address during this time, the server can email you
    your password for the new server. If both changed, please email
    webmaster@zope.org for assistance.

    When we officially switch over, a new export will be created.

  - Because the current www.zope.org/dev.zope.org combination uses
    domain-wide cookies (.zope.org) and an incompatible session key, you
    cannot be logged into www.zope.org if you want to log into new.zope.org
    as well. Either delete the .zope.org cookie, use the 'Log out' link on
    www.zope.org, or use a different browser for each site.

  - Don't make any important changes or new content on new.zope.org and
    expect them to be retained. All changes to content on new.zope.org will
    be ignored the next time we migrate over content from the current site.

Please file all bugs you find in the new.zope.org tracker at:


Thanks, and have fun!
