Actually I believe we could release just now. We have setuptools 0.6c9 and 
ZODB3.8.1 in the KGS trunk, so we just need a tag for zope.release, then publish 
the version.cfg. There is a remaining bug in the buildbot, but it is due to bad 
timing in the ZEO tests and the build slave being slow. This is not really a 
test failure. http://zope3.pov.lt/buildbot/

Another hard(?) task will be to create the tarball version, because it was a 
promise, and some people will probably find it usefull.

Is there someone to make the final release?

this is a very good idea

There is an ongoing effort to create a new zope.org site : http://new.zope.org
The mailing list used for this effort has been moved to : 

We need to find more contributors for the content. I have written some basic 
tutorials and other sections, but we need more. The site is currently a Plone 3, 
but I'm not sure Plone is useful for this case, since the site is not intended 
to be a collaborative workspace, but just a static informative site. I think it 
could just be powered by a bunch of static rst files converted to HTML and 
stored in the main svn repository. But this is not important for now, we just 
need content and doc.
