Would it help to create a fundable.org project to facilitate time or
travel for the people with the skill to solve this problem?

I have an interest in seeing a CMFMember workalike built on top of
Membrane/Memblets ASAP, hopefully ready for testing near the time
Plone-2.5 moves to beta. I don't personally have any CMFMember
deployments, but I agree that migration will be an imperative for many.

I also favor cooperation between two intriguing PlonePAS type-membership
projects. Hopefully Helge and Jens et al. would be willing to converge to
a single product supporting both facets of PlonePAS integration, perhaps
PLIP-tracked for Plone-3.0.


I'd like to contribute a modest sum toward a collectively funded effort,
if others are interested in same.
