Abstract

Abstract – This paper describes the deployment of Plone, an
Open-Source content management system, to support the
activities of CALIBRE, an EU-funded coordination action
integrating research into Libre software. The criteria by
which Plone was selected are described, and the goodness of
fit to these criteria is analysed.
As a coordination action, CALIBRE involves 12 partners
with different requirements and characteristics. The
CALIBRE Working Environment (CWE) must therefore
support a variety of users with different levels of technical expertise and expectations.
Implementation of the support infrastructure for CALIBRE
is ongoing, and has provided some interesting insights into the benefits of the use of libre software. Although Plone has not been explicitly developed as a collaboration infrastructure, with its wealth of plugins, it has proven highly adaptable for this purpose.
