1) I have some issues with how the virtual hosting setup of the site - I 
do not understand it :-)

2) Changes to the organisation of sponsor images.

3) Changes in caching

First, I would like to know how the VirtualHosting setup is done with 
the site.

the EPC2002 and 2003 refer to fodlers that do not exist in the root of 
the www.eurpython.org site.

The same goes for many images that refer to an /images folder not 
present in the root of www.europython.org. This makes it hard to manage 
images, etc.

Second, I am moving all the images from the root of www.europython.org 
to /conferences/epc2004/sponsors/logos/. This keeps things neat and tidy 
and keeps the root non-cluttered.

Thirdly, I have changed some of the caching parameters... this means 
that the site will be slower, but on the other hand it will display 
correct info.

Up to know I cached things like the login page, the folder_contents ZPT 
and other similar things, which simply lead to probolems for people 
using the site, especially for managers.

If you encounter more stuff that seems "weird and/or broken" please let 
me know and I'll try to see if it is related to caching... any expert in 
Zope caching out there is welcome to help - I am by no means an expert.
