My recent (first) experience of Plone with the old www.gnome-ev.de site
has really turned me off it. It seems far too difficult for people to
make changes, and enforces a far too rigid structure. The management
interface is particularly obscure and needlessly presents all kinds of
things as items in a hierarchy instead of organising them intuitively.
Meanwhile the draft/publish system is completely useless for the GNOME
Though the wiki overdoes it a bit in the other direction (it's not
organized enough) it shows how much good content you can get if you make
