Thanks, I had forgotten about that. Anyway, it could be any SVN
repository - and this project will only happen if one or two
volunteers do
the work of collecting interesting Zope 2 products, contacting the
authors (not strictly necessary but always a good thing to do) and
checking them in, possibly
cleaning things up here and there.

I know for one Formulator could be a candidate. I haven't been doing
much with it for quite a while now. Needs to be squared with Infrae,
which is doing some low-level maintenance on it, and it's safe in the
Infrae SVN, but should there be a good new home and enough volunteers
to help maintain it, it's quite possible Infrae would be interested in
having it most. I'm not speaking for Infrae here, just as the original
author of Formulator.
