Hi All,
   I've got a govt tender in front of me which is mandating:

1. Portal supporting full JSR 170 and a roadmap to support JSR 283  
Content Repository API
2. WCM supporting JSR 168 and JSR 286.

Which effectively mandates a Java solution. One other company has  
asked 'Will you still consider a CMS solution which is not Java  
based?' to which their (rather lame) reply was 'We have an open mind  
and will consider all responses equally'.

Has anyone here managed to come up with a good bit of text which  
suitably answers their question? Something along the lines of 'Plone  
does not support JSR standards as it is not a Java CMS, but we do  
support equivalent standards such as....'?
