It would be nice to see some more activity on the site.  But I don't  
think anyone is giving blame.  There is only so much you can do.   
Maybe there is a way to open up plone so that more people can share  
the work of running the site and making it better?

 From my point of view, Plone is too heavy and complicated for what  
the Pd community needs.  But its there, and switching to something  
else would be a ton of work, so it makes sense to try to make the  
best of what we got unless someone can really step up and take on the  
whole website as a project.
