The PD workshop that we are doing in NYC in April will be documented 
(from my understanding), have its samples put online (patches, mp3s 
and, possibly video, if we can manage).

The share website has some of this functionality (but it is 'event' 
centric, not project centric). Ie multimedia uploading, metadata 
parsing, comments. etc. One of the requests for the website is to make 
a project area for it.. but we dont have worked out all of the 
functionality this would have. Im working on the CMS with Hunter 
universities grad program, and am adding some cool features (the 
ability to mail /sms to the website media from an event, and have it 
associated in the DB, and shown on the event pages gallery, etc).

Are there any specific features that are lacking in common CMS systems 
when used for artists/projects like PD? Im attempting to make this CMS 
easy to use for artists groups to post events like workshops, 
performances etc, with galleries, licensed media as attachments, 
patches, news items, etc.

Eventually the shareCMS will be released GPLed once its a bit more 
flushed out and the featureset is all pimped out.

Let me know, as im curious what people expect in a CMS... it might give 
me some good ideas on how to integrate the functionality.
