I'd rather move the other directtion.  The thing that I disliked the
most about last year's site was that only a rare few people with Zope
chops could go hack on it.  The year before at least there was a wiki.
Moving to Plone seems to make this problem even worse.  I'd like it if
this conference could have a website that it was very, very, easy to
hack so that people could easily add whatever they like without having
to learn a content management system or 3.  It is possible for
communities to form, self-organising around documents, but only
if the people who want to form the communities and sub-groups get
to write the documents.
