We'll be picking it back up shortly.  For those that don't know, Ethan 
Fremen has left us to focus on some other things, so we've had a short 
period of time where we've had to transfer his efforts to others.

Chris McDonough has kindly volunteered to shepherd Zope News, and he's 
looking for people to chip in.  He's planning to change the style to be 
more like the Python-URL report.

On related matters, Martijn Pieters is now in the U.S. and has been 
integrated into Tres' CMF team.  Martijn is the point of contact on the 
team for zope.org matters.  The team, primarily Jens, is finishing up 
the migration of zope.org to CMF.

Let me give a quick report on this project.  It's going pretty well. 
Jens has worked very hard on the migration aspects of this.  Our goal is 
to do the extra work to make sure there is as little disruption as 
possible.  When this is done, zope.org will change from a bunch of 
zclasses and external methods that nobody here at ZC will confess to, 
into a solid CMF site with little custom software.  This will also 
provide the foundation for others to participate, but also for new 
services to become available more quickly.

I'm also eager for the transition, as there are a thousand content 
organization issues.  By far the biggest: why is it so hard to find 
documentation?  CMF, and future CMF features like rating, will give us 
a more sustainable basis for tackling this.

Hope this helps...
