Well, considering what kind of files are currently posted on

www.zopefoundation.org site.

For an example of another site doing this see:


The previous system certainly does offer limited CMS capabilities (by  
design) ... but so far I don't see any content that would prove a  

The goal was to help out the foundation quickly *have a presence*.  
For this reason I took the initiative and coordinated with Rob and  
Tom and our designer/developers and our hosting provider to set  
something up right away -- to build momentum.

If the foundation liked the system great / if not than at least there  
was something to start with and later to copy and paste to another  
site/cms once it was ready. Now we don't have a foundation website to  
speak of and "weeks" to wait until we have something comparable?

Doesn't matter what system is used but we certainly have less than  
before -- unless anybody considers a zope.org page with 8 pdf  
downloads progress.

Anyway, good luck with that.
