Hello, Since years we hear: "And what can you do with your Plone site?" Our first answer was to build the plone professional network on the plone.net site. This site is himself a success story.
With times some projects were built upon Plone: PloneEdu, Plone4Artists, educomponents, educommons, getpaid, communeplone and maybe a lot more. All of them take a basic Plone installation and choose to specialize it for a given target. All of them implements components that are not easy to use separately of their project. Many of them are in an unknown status. Some of them are targeting the same public. Some projects are targeting only a country. Having a page to recense them on plone.org can show how active is the plone community when code repositories are always more dispatched. All of them need a better, clearer and centralized communication face of the official plone.org site. It would help them to reach their public, to build group of interest around them with developers, translators and users. For example for the edu target: - the ploneEdu project seems to be dead for years but the ploneedu.org domain is always used... to redirect to others CMS. - educommons is growing and maintained translations are welcomed - educomponents seems to need fresh blood to give it a second youth Does anyone of these projects are Plone 3.3 compatible? Do they start to work to be compatible with Plone 4? The Plone Foundation doesn't have to manage them or to take the leadership in one of them. It can helps to promote them and to build group of interest around them.
