first of all, I did not want to start a new discussion, so please
forgive me for that. Unfortunately, I did read most of the mails in
the archive relating to l10n and i18n of this list after I sent my
email. See more comments inline.

Well, nothing is impossible either with Plone or Wordpress or whatever
other thing you choose. Of course, I was just replying to the first
thing that talked about a switch away from Plone, so I argued in that
direction. I realize you have done a lot of work with Plone, and I
just want to get the job done, I don't want to enter a endless
discussion about a switch.

Sorry, I don't understand the phrasing (my mother's tongue being spanish).
Do you mean it's not a priority before the new www.gnome.org is up? Or
even if the new wgo is up?
If the first, I totally agree with you. And I'll try to install the
plone site in my machine this week so I can document how to deploy it,
But if you are willing to put some bounties for getting Plone done, I
would focus on addons.mozilla.org.

Well, I wanted to work on addons.gnome.org because I didn't know about
this get Plone online thing. I still think it would be a very worthy
addition to some of the applications in gnome desktop that have a lot
of plugins, like gedit, but I understand your desire of not hearing
it while wgo is not up, so I will keep my work on this (if any) under
the hood until there is something worthy to discuss/announce.
