"...and the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thou foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.'" If you have Zope installation/administration experience to share, and an ability to write in a clear manner, this documentation project needs your input.

Yes, all complex systems need instructions, lest we blow ourselves into tiny bits. For too long, our favorite application server platform has lacked a comprehensive administrator's reference manual. Right then! Presenting the:

*** Zope Administrator's Guide (ZAG) Documentation Project ***

From the Scope description:

"The ZAG should cover installation, maintenance, backups, upgrading, integrating Zope with web servers, using ZEO, Zope logs, Zope database maintenance (ie packing), troubleshooting, installing and upgrading products, compiling Zope, initial manager creation.

"The ZAG should not cover using Zope, or developing for Zope. For example, the ZAG probably shouldn't cover creating user accounts, or controlling permission/role settings."

We're looking for a few good writers, editors and reviewers (anyone who's interested, really) to help out with this important documentation project. If you have Zope installation/administration experience to share, and an ability to write in a clear manner, this documentation project needs your input.
