This is quite strange. MathAction is the seventh hit on google for just
"axiom", and "axiom computer algebra system" finds axiom on savannah as first

I agree, and I am promoting MathAction for this purpose. However, especially
Bill Page thinks that Plone would be better suited in the long run. Time will


PS: when using MathAction, PLEASE identify yourself. THis has to be done only
