Expertise is a small part of the issue.  There's infrastructure work to be 
done, strategic decisions to be made, and more infrastructure work to be 
done.  If you believe you can help in answering some of the issues from the 
PloneIssues page, please feel free to start a thread on this list or drop in 
on the next meeting.

Some of the questions are a simple matter of teaching Plone usage.  Some of 
the issues need strategic decisions.  Others need a technical solution.  The 
technical solutions will follow as Infrastructure does its thing and the Docs 
infrastructure is built to use Plone.

No.  The infrastructure would require adaptation to do this, and there would 
have to be a static HTML container built and put into place.  The current 
system is also dependent upon PHP, which is not an option for  These are just some of the reasons that Plone is a 
target.  Believe me, if it had been so easy to move to, it would have already been done.

There are a few other things still reliant upon, but moving 
docs over would be a huge step in the right direction and would put 
additional pressure on the other hold-outs.
