I've already got ssh/root on grok.zope.org (from when we initially set- 
up the server) so I can install the buildouts on there when we are  
ready to go with them.

I've been forging on - I've got the gzo.plonepolicy setting the proper  
portlets upon site creation now, and pushed the customizations from  
main_template.pt elsewhere - although this has caused new CSS issues,  
once I beat those down I'll have a new commit ready ...

Access to the content that has been already loaded into the Plone  
instance created during the sprint would be good, then I can roll that  
into a Plone instance under buildout control. If someone from the  
sprint wants to email me a .zexp of the content in that site, or send  
me login info so I can create dumps that would be helpful.

Note that there has also been discussion about a more stable release  
of Plone Help Center (PHC) for Plone 3 in the next couple of weeks:


Has there been any discussion on accounts and handling content within  

Will we be managing some/all/none of the tutorials by syncing the  
content from SVN into PHC?

Do we have an LDAP server we can authenticate against? Is the old  
zope.org site using LDAP?

If we have accounts elsewhere, then we can also handle changing  
ownership of the sprint created content to it's respective owners  
(i.e. all content right now is owned by 'admin').
