Dear Bill,

I think that concentrating on MathAction would be a good idea, since our
community is pretty small, however:

I propose the following: I integrate into MathAction those things I can move to
MathAction (Please provide pointers). As soon as the need arises, we integrate
MathAction into Plone.

Although MathAction is less controlled, please notice that there is very little
action on MathAction... So, control is not an issue currently.

I do not have the time of maintaining the content of two sites. And -- sorry,
Bill -- I'm quite certain that it would not be a good idea to somehow split the
content. PLEASE: Let's go with MathAction for a while. It provides -- nearly
:-) -- everything we need right now!

I see your point. However, it seems that you agree to

Please send an OK!, than I'll do this.

That's an option of course. I'll spend a few minutes on thinking how to
reorganize the material on the Documentation page, OK?
