Two points:

1) Is it possible to merge Metazope and zope.org, combining the 
leadership from both efforts?

2) As for scripting, if we did (1) and the new leadership agreed (and 
moreover, would do the sysadmin to support it), then I'll accede to 
their wishes.  As long as the commitment was there to support the 
decision (otherwise it's a hit-and-run and were left holding the bag).
