Maybe I am responsible for 50+ pages, and I want to modify all 50+
of them simultaneously with a script (this example is not merely
hypothetical). Will I then have to copy the 50+ pages manually
onto the website, or can they all be put into place simultaneouly
with e.g. rsync? What if I change my mind the next day and I
decide to change all 50+ pages again?
This is the way that I currently manage the snofrix website.
Any program that prevents me from operating in this way
is unlikely to win my favor.
I should add that plone is currently on my hate list because
the flags (representing different languages) have still not
found their way onto the snofrix pages. This sounds like
a little thing, but I think it points to deeper problems:
1) I do not know how to make the changes myself, and
2) the people who do know how seem to believe that it
is a very time-consuming operation.
Although (1) could be traced to ignorance or stupidity on my part,
(2) is more disturbing. In a good system, I would be able to solve
the problem myself despite my ignorance/stupidity.
