I think this post makes some good points as go why a plone flavours or  
plone distributions could have there own place on plone dot org. Are  
there plans ?

> For example for the edu target:
> - the ploneEdu project seems to be dead for years but the
>  ploneedu.org domain is always used... to redirect to others CMS.
> - educommons is growing and maintained translations are welcomed
> - educomponents seems to need fresh blood to give it a second youth
> Does anyone of these projects are Plone 3.3 compatible?
> Do they start to work to be compatible with Plone 4?
> The Plone Foundation doesn't have to manage them or to take the
