Yes, we've had some discussions on it.  Our goal here is to get Zope2
and the portal toolkit stuff running and useful on the new
soon-to-be-announced zope.org site.  I think it shows promise, and will
provide a platform for collecting a lot of ideas about content, but
right now the glitches would drain way too much of Barry's time.

September is a good time to start thinking more seriously about it. 
We'll probably discuss it at DCPIGgie.
