I think what we need to come up with is a general structure for the projects
hosted. What exactly do we want to offer? This is the list I can think of so

€ CVS repository. Some developers might already have their own CVS
repositories, perhaps at SF, but others may choose to have it hosted here.

€ mailing lists and Web archives for them. Perhaps a better approach is to
have common mailing lists for all the applications (separated for users and
developer), so we can maintain a closer community. Should we reuse instead
Apache's mailing lists?

€ Web site presence. I think we need to have a combination of static pages
with dynamic ones, to show off examples and so on. For the Web site, I think
we need to maintain a common look and feel, just like Mozilla has for their
applications. How do people publish their content? Do they have access to a
staging area to test their site, and then publish it? It would be great if
we can get some thoughts on what we need here.

The last bullet seems to be the biggest item. It would be great if we can
come up with some more requirements on what it takes to have Web presence
for these applications, and then sketch out an implementation in Cocoon for
