Forum/article web app written in Python/Zope?
I'm working on an intranet site at the moment as a side project, which is aiming to provide a community for Python developers within my company. I'd like to use PHPNuke (http://phpnuke.org) or PHPReactor (http://phpreactor.org) to provide an articles system and a decent forum, but the project manager is insistent that Python must be used... he's planning to use the site as a showcase of sorts to demonstrate some of the web-based abilities of Python.
The problem at the moment is that myself and the other main web developer are accomplished PHP/Perl developers, but we are very limited in terms of Python experience, particularly in web-based applications. What we are looking for is a Python web app that provides a discussion forum (and maybe articles system). So far we've only come across CCQ, which doesn't meet our requirements. I think we'll probably end up outsourcing the project to a Python programmer... but does anyone know of any Python based forum/article software that already exists?
[btw we've already checked out http://squishdot.org... it hasn't got the discussion features we need.]

Hope this helps...
Unfortunatly, i see no one who has implemneted a full scale web forum in py.
But you could try checking out the Exits on www.python.org
The VAults of Parnisiuss usually has something on it to get you thinking/give you some ideas.
found this on there, dunno if it's any good but will be worth checking out :
