Well, considering what kind of files are currently posted on
www.zope.org/foundation (these seem to be all .pdf files) these could
have been easily posted in the File Center of "yesterdays"
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
Anyway, good luck with that.
