Yes, Chris and Heimo were kind enough to create an
opportunity to have an open discussion about zope.org.
We discussed the need to make it easy to participate
and how we might balance that with manageability.

The disussion at EuroPython focused on how to get
people involved  - not specific tasks or target
enhancements.  In other words, we didn't discuss docs
per se but zope.org in general.

That said, participating in the zope.org effort
includes systems, software AND content.

To that end...

Toward the bottom of the page at:


is a table describing how you can get involved in
helping with zope.org.  Specifically, item 4a points to
a click-through/email agreement and an NDA.  This page
describes when each is needed.

We're going to hold an IRC to discuss zope.org and
develop a plan of action and generally get things
moving.  The IRC session will be as follows:


      (a) People that are interested in volunteering on
           zope.org, and

      (b) People that have volunteered to help on
          zope.org by completing the mailback form
          and/or non-disclosure agreement.
