I understand the precautions before publishing the statement to the mailing list, and my interest in the old site is that there were several cases of success of PloneEdu to resume in the new subsite
I totally agree that he should make a ploneedu.cfg file for various installation modes, further I think we should provide a distribution based on the unified installer for countries whose infrastructure Internet connection is very slow, so in this way solve greatly facilitate the installation and configuration of a PloneEdu site.
Many developing countries have serious problems of Internet connectivity, eg Venezuela, whenever a new user in Plone decide to test this technology in most cases, choose not to deploy Plone your website, because they have many problems when trying to have a Plone successful installation with a connection of less than 1 MB.
In Brazil, Jean Ferri is a Interlegis Project member, he resolved this problem by creating a distribution of legislative councils in Plone by creating a custom Unified Installer.
Maybe @smcmahon can guide us on the best way to solve this!
