Well, as already mentioned, I'd love to help. That said I'm not sure I
have much i can do on this particular task, but maybe. :)

I'm torn between on one hand, the sillyness of not using Zope + what I
think is a bit tricky from a maintaining point of view and on the
other hand, the benefit of having things versioned.
I have worked with the codespeak stuff, and I can't really say I like
it, although it makes sense when it comes to code, with the automatic
tarball generation form release tags and all that.
In the end, what I care most about it that things happen now. So if
this is faster than setting up a plone/cps/silva site, then by all
means, go ahead.

However, integrating that layout into something that can be used
primarily on Plone (or CPS. Or maybe both, with CPSSkins) usable for
any *.zope.org microsites seems to be to be a worthwhile task.

Weeks? Wasn't it working yesterday? :-)

Yeah, I second that question. :^) It seems to me that the fastest way
of doing this is doing what was done yesterday, and redirecting
