The difficulty here is that the sources of the pages on MathAction
are actually all stored in a single file called 'Data.fs'. This
file contains the "Zope database". All of the persistent objects
(pages and scripts), their properties and history that is managed
by Zope is stored in this one file. Zope already provides a form
of version control.

tla on the other hand is oriented to maintaining the history of
a large group of files. It can not very usefully manage the
contents of a single file.

There are other intelligent ways of creating a complete and
up to date mirror of the MathAction site. One approach would be
to use 'rsync'. There is also a tool designed specifically for
Zope to synchronize two remote Zope-based web sites.
