I agree with this 100%.  Heck, I have access to the code and I still
find it a pain to do anything since we don't have a cvs interface to it.
I'm planning on focusing on www first. Most of it is brochureware
oriented site, with non collaborative content, and non content oriented
development needed ; the types of site that should be done in CVS. (BTW
I had hoped to finish it up last night, but the current
outage has stopped me in my tracks)

Techdocs is a different beast, it's all about collaborative content
development, and as such the zwiki framework should work well for it.
