It is a custom mix of unix tools, mark pilgrims feedparser module and 
CMF used for the frontend and storage.

There are just 2 files changing at http://planetzope.org, the web 
representation (index_html) and the RSS file (feed_rss.xml). Easiest 
solution is updating an adaption of both files every hour to a location 
at (planet.)zope.org -- the next zope.org will likely grow its own 
planet solution...

I'll create you a prototype for testing until the weekend.
