Those look mainly like technical problems to me. I’m not sure Plone is the 
right basis (don't know it), but maybe helping the current maintainer out and 
addressing the right issues may be a more fruitful attempt to keep a good 
extension site running than starting from scratch and rediscovering the same 
old problems. As said, I’m happy to assist him/her, but just redrafting 
requirements without any observation-based ideas about what makes a great 
template site (and I just don’t buy the idea that is mainly about the 
user-accounts) doesn’t end really well anywhere in my book. Maintaining 
software doesn’t become easier when you build a complex tool (an extensions 
website) on something that isn’t meant for it (a Q/A site).
