yes, i'm jodok batlogg, ceo of the solution2u.net gmbh in austria. we
are a small company working mainly with plone.
together with godefroid chapelle (the list should know him :)) i
coordinate the i18n activities in the plone project.

candle (www.candle.eu.org. i coordinated/wrote the proposal and
managed the project at the beginning)
- - after founding my own company in 2001 and doing some java stuff we
switched to zope/plone in february 2003.

of prof. meder)

standardisation commitees and brings a lot of knowledge into the team

between os and business

o products

The Product LearningSequence provides an simple and efficient way to
