Plone won't be making it into our infrastructure other then docs.  We just
don't have the manpower and there's better alternatives out there.  One
reason we're on static pages right now is so we can use transifex to do
translations and lower the barrier to having people contribute.

You can re-create the entire website in just a minute on your workstation
with the current system which allows people to make complete and drastic
changes, put them up on fedorapeople for demo, then we can import or not
import.  Its a very easy / clean workflow.  I'm not saying it will be
around forever or anything but for this release we (infrastructure) are
focusing on hardening the stuff we currently have and aren't expanding
much.
