I really like phpgw...its come a long way since I first started using it.

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.
It seems that my needs are in the middle somewhere but *probably* leaning more towards the CMS side (in this case) because I want *users* to be able to manage the site whereas phpgw doesn't seem to lend itself to that as nicely.

I know phpgw whereas I'm just starting out with plone. I know one of sitemgr's goals was to be able to emulate postnuke (which I orignally used at the cci site below) and I *hate* the *nukes now. They are horrible for pretty much anything...especially when you need to have your users have different security levels. One killer app that I would *love* to have is support for the photo gallery at Has anybody done that?

If you ever reach total enlightenment while you're drinking a beer, I bet it makes beer shoot out your nose.
