You mentioned "Zopification" in another item.  Wouldn't both
of the above be fairly simple if the PEPs were maintained with
Zope instead of wherever they are now?  

We are using Zope to manage structured information similar to
the PEPs and it is an easy matter to configure things so
that upon a status field changing, a post is automatically
made.  I no longer allow manual processes that don't add
value relative to an automated one to waste our time.  It just
seems silly in this day and age to think of someone manually 
extracting information and posting it to c.l.p this way.
