Hi Zpugs,

I will be presenting a Plone Site Product (1Z Site Class) that allows
fast and easy site development from the file system.  I have a pending
news item on trizpug.org.  It contains the following informations:

What good is a site product?

to develop Plone sites on the FS

to quickly create new Plone sites

to inherit from existing Plone sites

to inherit skins from existing Plone sites

to keep a separation from content and structure

to save time

Some of the features I will cover

  1. each site has a Home folder, so
    1.1. the base Plone folder stays clean
  2. workflow is modified to work
  3. content can be created from site product
  4. keeps skins folders simple, but orginized
  5. can re-run each section on existing site
