I perfectly agree. Prowler is by no means an end. We started Infozone/Prowler
because we needed an open source CMS and related technologies. Now there is a
an (early) architecture and a (very early) codebase that all interested people
can discuss about - a starting point - "A way to "catalize" a community..."
Nothing is set in stone yet. The current architecture reflects our current needs
and requirements. Everybody is invited to join the discussion, sharing his/her
ideas about an open source CMS, and in general help us with the development.

Regarding the license of Infozone/Prowler: As Stefano already mentioned, we
have agreed to donate Prowler to Apache XML and thus changing our license, if
you are interested in such a project.
