The only request that I have related to Plone.com, is that it works  
for the job (and that is not an objective). If they step up and can  
create a fast solution, we should get a grip on that. Is there the  
targetgroup definition in place? Do we have a moodchart where to go  
for emotionally? This should be a suggestion for a professional  
starting point for them, but not be part of a discussion.

With Plone and Diazo final finetuning is a snap. The quality should be  
state of the art and meet some expectations. If they (You!) could  
quickly write up some points they can meet with success, it would help  
a lot to gain speed.

Good design can let you feel the quality of the product. This is not a  
matter of eye candy. We should aim at that and it should be a little  
"Plonish". I still wear my Plone Conf shirts from 2004 by clearnoodle  
design at night. And I sleep well ;-)

This is the only points I have in mind. The rest is CONTENT and  
content rules!

Very important (from disasters in the past with other projects, aka  
ZOPE): Make sure all rights of the design are fully transferred to the  
Plone Foundation and there is no "Reservation" attitude for design  
decisions in the follow up.

No worry, It is just the contemporary appearance!
