It's currently stalled due to technical Plone/Zope issues.
Specifically, we had a Plone 2 beta system running on a non-GNOME web
server and we tried to have it all brought across to gnome.org properly
(just for a beta). The person who did that chose to deliver a
half-converted Plone 3 version instead, which cannot be installed in its
current state. Finishing that Plone 3 conversion seems to be difficult.
And this is just to get a beta to decide if we even like it. On the plus
side though, a lot of iterative work and feedback went into the original
Plone 2 test site, largely under Quim's wise guidance.

There's occasional discussion about it on gnome-web-list. I'm driving it
occasionally because someone must, but I'm not doing any work on the
Plone stuff. Various Plone enthusiasts are occasionally helping or
promising to help. It's not going well. This week is pretty much its
If the Plone 3 conversion can't be done we may try to build a Plone 3
system from scratch from the original requirements and mock-ups.
