I finally heard back from the Webcast Producer at O'Reilly Media and
they need a bit of convincing before they would be willing to move
forward with a Plone based version of what they did for Drupal last
fall. Basically this is their question:
"I'm not unwilling to test the waters, but can you give me an idea
of what you would consider the (Plone) market share to be?"
Where can I find this type of information so we can put together an
argument about why Plone should even get their coverage?
I guess its hard to answer exactly what Plone's market share is, as I
guess it depends what you define the market as. I mean, Plone won
best non-PHP Open Source CMS Award from Packt, so I guess it would be
fair to say that it's market share of 'non-php Open Source CMSes'
would be pretty large ;)
'What percentage of websites run Plone?' would be a tiny tiny
percentage if you are looking at all websites worldwide... then again
its probabaly larger than many commercial CMSes out there.
These sort of figures are what Karl Horek has been trying to work out
on his Plone Metrics blog http://plonemetrics.blogspot.com/
Since Oreilly are big on Open Source... a figure such as 'Plone is in
the top 5% of Open Source projects' or some such would be possibly of
use. I can't remember if that stat is right, or the source... maybe
someone else here can find the actual figure and source.
