Hi web site volunteers,
My background - I maintain quite a few Plone sites, including the
public site for the organizations I work for (http://www.bcgsc.ca). I
spend about 25-50% of my work time working with Plone and now Grok. I
also helped get the original Grok web site up, and I also did the
skinning work for the Zope 3 wiki. I've dabbled in all areas of web
scarred attempting to use the Netscape <layers> tag a long time
ago ... I've also been using Zope on-and-off over the last 8 years
since the 1.1 release, and once rolled my own CMS that made extensive
use of PyPerl and Zope Perl Scripts (very sexy!). As a Grok volunteer
I'm only mildly reliable, as I do get busy with other things from
time to time.
For the Grok with Plone project I'm willing to assist/help take
Sebastian's design and turn it into a Plone skin.
For the initial work I think we should just focus on getting the
basic skin ready. There has already been a lot of discussion and
design work done already, so hopefully the skinning process can go
As for specifics, Plone 3 (obviously) and using buildout,
GenericSetup and friends so that volunteers can easily create their
own development sandbox.
