Hi Mickaël,

We may be facing a large project by the next year, related to content 
management, so I started day dreaming with the possibility of using Erlang 
there.

I believe that what we need is a Zope + Plone like solution.  We are currently 
using typo3 for ourselves, mainly because we find it very easy for the end 
users, and that's very important for us. But we feel typo3 might not be 
appropriate for a large scale project with lots of extra requirements 
(developments), like the one I mentioned.

It'll be great to have an erlang solution for this kind of applications.  We 
are certainly very interested on it, so please, let us know any progress, 
either on the design or the implementation stage, in order to move on the 
same direction (If we ever start working on this, I'll let you know).

Best,
