 Nuxeo releases CourierCPS, the generic solution for mail management in CPS 3

   Nuxeo releases CourierCPS, the mail management solution for
   Collaborative Portal Server 3 (CPS3). This software module allows
   organisations to dematerialize from end to end the processing chain
   for incoming and outgoing mail. CourierCPS has been developped by
   Nuxeo within a contract for the French Ministry of Interior, of
   Internal Security and Local Rights (MISILL), in partnership with
   Capgemini. This is one of the first projects dealing with
   administrative procedures dematerialization thoroughly built on Zope
   and CPS.

   CourierCPS comes from a development project for the General
   Directorate for Local Authorities (DGCL), and aims at being extended
   to the Secretariat-General and the other directorates inside the
   Ministry. The goal is to provide the civil servants with a reliable
   and user-friendly mail management service which will allow them to
   reply to the incoming mail efficiently. Optimizing the steering of
   mail responses (improving response delays, access to a knowledge
   base...) gives the Ministry an important leverage for improving the
   quality of its relationship with its administrates. According to
   Emmanuel Marcovitch, project manager at the Information and
   Communication Systems Directorate (DSIC), "the use of CPS in general,
   and of CourierCPS in particular, is part of a global modernization
   endeavour. We increase information sharing and exchange, using
   collaborative tools tailored to our business".

   CourierCPS illustrates perfectly pouring back a software module
   developped for a major account to the Open Source community. The
   module has been subjected to a significant generization processe
   before it was released to the community, so that they will benefit
   from a real packaged software and not the offspring of a specific
   project. "We want to make it clear that the developments carried out
   by Nuxeo and published under the GPL are all subjected to a packaging
   and generization process. We publish only reusable components and not
   custom developments", says Stéfane Fermigier, Nuxeo's CEO. This
   process of incorporating CourierCPS into the generic CPS code base
   guarantees the module's perenity and evolutivity.

   The design of business solutions for the administration through Open
   Source software helps mutualize knowledge and know-hows. Using Open
   Source software within process dematerialization projects helps the
   Electronic Administration grow faster, while at the same time saving
   on costs. "The ADELE gouvernment programme is partly dedicated to
   favoring development mutualisation. A collaborative platform that will
   permit to capitalize on e-government software will hence be created.
   CourierCPS is an example of what can be expected in terms of best
   practices for software components mutualization and reuse", says
   Jean-Paul Degorce-Dumas, in charge of the resource center at the
   Agency for the Development of Electronic Administration (ADAE).

   The Electronic Administration is playing the Open Source card: new
   developments carried out for one administration, after generization
   and publication under the GPL - the license recommended by ADAE for
   developments financed by the Administration - are used by the other
