    Plone 4 works with Python 2.6
    Ubuntu 9.04 which includes Python 2.6.2 works well.
    If you install Python 2.6.3, you have to install Distribute instead of setuptools.

    You can get Plone 4 like this:
    svn co https://svn.plone.org/svn/plone/buildouts/plone-coredev/branches/4.0 plone4
    cd plone4
    python2.6 bootstrap.py
    bin/buildout -c i18n.cfg

    For Plone 3.3:
    svn co https://svn.plone.org/svn/plone/plonenext/3.3 plone3
    cd plone3
    python2.4 bootstrap.py
    bin/buildout -c i18n.cfg

    To update the buildout:
    svn up
    bin/develop up


    English and French Documentation

    Write english and french documentation about how to translate things in Plone 3 & 4 (bug http://dev.plone.org/plone/ticket/9090)

    * How to translate strings in templates

    * How to translate dynamic vocabularies

    * How to translate portlet

    * How to translate properties (some developers use properties to build vocabularies)

    * How to translate a content type

    (strings come from python, template, profile, ..., we need to know in each case how to translate.)


    * Add note on versions of Plone
