PloneGov : Bringing Plone to Local Governements
Plone is one of the best known Free Software Content Management Systems (CMS) in the market. Much of the importance of Plone lies in its power and flexibility, enabling it to be applied in a wide variety of contexts.
(Huber M., PloneGov: Bringing Plone to Local Governments, in www.linuxpromagazine, 19.10.07)
This maturity was no more obvious than during the "PloneGov" developer sprint at this year's Plone Conference. PloneGov is about bringing Plone to local government organisations. However, the focus is not on the technology. Instead, the key aim of the project is to support collaboration between local governments, the Open Source developer community and small to medium enterprises (SME) that support deployment. This said, some of the technical work going into PloneGov is also very interesting.
