Would you please?:

1) Create a news item on trizpu.org and *publish* it so that it appears 
in the news portlet. Highlight that the topics are ArchGenXML and psyco,
2) Create a calendar item on trizpug.org, like it to the news item 
through the "Event URL" metadata field, and *publish* it so that it 
appears in the calendar portlet,
3) Create an appropriate link to the calendar entry in 
4) Create a *news item* on zope.org and *submit* it for publication 
(zope.org is good about approving news items within 24 hours). Put a 
link on the news item pointing back at the trizpug.org calendar item. If 
you have to edit a published zope.org item which you own, you must 
retract it first in order to edit it.
5) On plone.org, in your *workspace* (plone.org did away with normal 
member folders for mere mortals), create a calendar item, *tag it* with 
the keyword "Training" selected from the "Event Type" metadata drop down 
on the edit form, and submit it for publication. The guidelines for 
getting a calendar item published on plone.org are here:


There apparently is a way to get calendar items published in the 
plone.org "Upcoming Events" portlet intead of the "Upcoming Training" 
portlet because the newly formed "Seattle Plone Gathering" manages to 
get listings in it. But if the procedure is published, I sure don't know 
where it is. Maybe you could just try tagging the calendar item with 
"Meeting" instead of "Training," submit that, and see what happen

Whew! All those steps sound like a workflow to me. What we need is a 
content management system with workflow. :)
