Im a phpgw zealot...i mean it.... but plone...well, its right up there
with the best of breed in what it does. Its a great software built for a
great architecture.

STILL, if your primary need is groupware, and then you need to exploit
your collaboration information to export to a website, then
phpgw+sitemgr can very well be for you. Zope is not a good groupware
application because it is NOT a groupware application (not going into
that, im shure you know what i mean) there, thats an argument for
phpgroupware+sitemgr for certain uses.

Yes, you will need to code some stuff arround, BUT, its is REALLY EASY
TO DO, very well documented and, in particular, sitemgr's architecture
is extremely clean, lean and mean.
