Of course, so we should avoid this by trying to contact the original
developer(s). I
guess I wasn't clear about 'not strictly necessary'; I'd consider it
less necessary if there
has been no development for years, but of even then sending off an
email makes sense. It might
not make sense to wait indefinitely for an answer, however.

I think a Plone site should be able to run something like this, as
plone.org does, right? Anyway,
I don't think the technology is the most work here. We need someone to
go through and create
the content. Even a simple web-page listing interesting products and
where to find them would already
be tremendous progress.  Content will be our challenge, let's not
worry about technology too much, which
should be in good hands.
