[Grok-dev] the grok website: Plone?

Hi there,

It's clear from the earlier website thread that Plone seems to have some 
volunteers from within our own community. This, and the fact that Plone 
is a mature system, weighs strongly in favor of Plone in my mind.

[I do by the way hope to hear from Darryl. He's been rather quiet the 
last few weeks and didn't weigh in on the thread: I hope he's okay and 
just on vacation or something]

Plone volunteers, please organize yourself and distribute tasks among 
yourselves. Let us know the plan. Let's use Sebastian's layout for the 
website! With some luck we could be up and running with a Plone based 
solution by Grok's anniversary next month. :)

That said, I'd like to keep the following options open explicitly:

* Eventually we should switch to a Grok-based solution as we should 
indeed showcase our own dogfood. :) I believe Zope 3, and Grok, are 
great systems to build CMSes in. I therefore have every hope that we'll 
see one or more excellent, mature Grok-based CMSes in the future. 
Sebastian's and Darryl's efforts are great starts already. Let's wait 
and see.

* We should also explicitly allow areas of our website to be made with 
other tools that are indeed in Grok already. A reference site with 
inline commenting features for instance might be a great Grok application.
