Yes, this strategy indeed makes more sense with code (where 
documentation is often maintained along with the code) than with 
something like this site.

I do think it's faster to get going with this.

That's a very welcome offer! We have a (hopefully still) standing offer 
from the Plone community to host the site on the plone.org 
infrastructure that we definitely need to investigate.

Unfortunately it was in a hosted environment entirely separate from 
zope.org or even the zope community as far as I'm aware. We also had the 
impression that it seemed to offer limited content management facilities 
- more facilities to maintain members and so on, but we don't have a 
need for something like that just yet.
