What is eGroupware used for in the magazine?

We don't need Joomla or any other PHP CMS.  We are using Plone for CMS,
it can handle all of what the other ones can.  Bonus -- you benefit from
the Fedora knowledge and hacking on Plone, versus doing it all yourself.

Anand has general support for his idea, via f-marketing-l, but he is
definitely going a bit in his own direction.  This is not necessarily a
bad thing -- if he has the energy to grow the contributors and sustain
the momentum, we'll all learn a few things.

My recommendation is for Fedora Magazine to be a SIG operating within
the Fedora News Project.  Right now, FWN is the sole output of Fedora
News, but that doesn't have to be.  So, Fedora Magazine would be a peer
output effort.

IMHO, an effort needs at least SIG status before it should get precious
Infrastructure resources.  If we get to the point where Xen instances
can be handed out like Halloween candy, then that changes.  Right?
