Can you tell me what options there will be for scripting on the new site?

I have a couple of scripts that generate my homepage, and an XML listing of
all available products in the Downloads section.

If anyone is interested, I have also generated a pair of scripts that turn a
subfolder containing DTMLMethods into either a formatted HTML page for my
changelog, or an XML Change Log. Reworking this, and my homepage as flat
HTML would be possible but is un-zope in the extreme... my XML Product List
is completely un-flattenable.

HTML: http://www.zope.org/Members/haqa/changes/view_source
XML:  http://www.zope.org/Members/haqa/changes_xml/view_source

How will I, at least, do this under the new set up?

Please can someone explain the decision to deny us access to scripting? Is
the a security issue that is too hard to fix, or what?

Subject: [Zope-Annce] ATTENTION: Zope.org migration issues

Hello to all Members of Zope.org,

As some of you may know, we are hard at work building a new Zope.Org website
based entirely on the CMF. Because this is going to be a completely new
server, content on the current server has to be migrated and converted for
the new site.

Most of the content on Zope.org can be migrated quite easily. However, there
are a few content types in use on Zope.org that cannot or will not be
migrated directly or at all. These types will have to be converted to
another content type if they are to be migrated to the new site.

You only have to worry about content in your own Member Folder, and only if
you really want it migrated. Here are the problem types and what to do with
the content they represent:

- DTML Method: paste the contents into a 'STX Document' for structured text,
  or 'Formatted Document' for html formatting. DTML scripting will no longer
  supperted on the new Zope.org site.

- XML Document: XML Document is usually used to act as the source for a
  end-document. Render the end-document view to HTML and paste the result
  into a Formatted Document

- ZTopic: Unfortunately, there is no alternative for migrating a ZTopic. If
  you have created a ZTopic in your Member Folder and feel that it provides
  value to Zope.org visitors let me know and I'll see if we can provide an
