[Grok-dev] CMS Project

Hi all,

For a few weeks now, a few of us have been tossing around (on blogs and in
IRC) the idea of writing a simple CMS in Grok. The goal is to keep the
system simple, focusing on improving usability with subsequent releases
instead of improved functionality. To keep ourselves honest, we've set out
with the goal of providing a migration path from the CMS to Plone; we figure
that that will be so difficult that it will make us think twice about adding
many features.

With these few goals in place, I'd like to ask the community for comments
and advice. I've set up a project page on OpenPlans that details what
thinking has been done on the project, and there's an IRC channel to discuss
it if chat's your thing. Any advice is appreciated, and as things develop,
if anyone thinks they'd be interested in working on such a project
(planning, code, docs, design, anything really), that would be wonderful.
This is explicitly an open source project, and so the code will be licensed
under an OSI license (ZPL 2.1 is my current plan) and in a public

Project Page: http://www.openplans.org/projects/concave/
IRC (freenode): #concave

Thanks for your time,
Matt Bowen
