Not sure if it means anything but our company submitted 4 talks for  
pyconau this year. The two plone related talks were the two rejected.
It got me to thinking about the plone communities relationship to the  
python community.
I think open source is spread by fans, people not directly involved  
with the software itself. Those fans exist in a much larger community  
than plone itself. It makes me think that if the python community  
aren't fans of Plone, then where are our fans?
Sorry it's a little negative and off topic.
