Zope Content Management Framework (CMF) README
What is the CMF?
The Zope Content Management Framework provides a set of services and content
objects useful for building highly dynamic, content-oriented portal sites. As packaged,
the CMF generates a site much like the Zope.org site. The CMF is intended to be
easily customizable, in terms of both the types of content used and the policies
and services it provides.
- The CMF "dogbowl" site, http://cmf.zope.org.
- The mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org. List information and online signup
