I am interested but very busy also. :)

I try to answer the questions from the status of today. This may change a bit, if our 
sites are more popular and there are more people, asking for help or doing some 
unusal tasks ;-)

Currently the manager has to help some users that have issues with their account or 
with their extensions/templates.
They have e.g. issues with the opt-in-email or get an error message, if they create a 
new release or want to upload their extension/template. The manager has to deal with 
this. He had to read the full error message, analyse the problem and search for a 
solution (that could be a workaround for the user, e.g. a different file format that 

Because there are currently not enough active reviewer of projects, the manager has 
also to do this task and proofread the new projects, look at the language setting of 
each new project and every new release (and eventually change it manually to language 
neutral) and publish the project, if every thing is according to our conditions. If 
there is something missing (e.g. a screenshot or a project logo) or there is a wrong 
logo (not project related) the manager will inform the contributor by email (from 
inside the Plone CMS with webmaster-address).

be restarted, this is only posible from the file system of the server. This needs 
permissions from the TDF and a ssh-key on the server. But this tasks have not to be 
done every day, because Plone is a very secure framework and security issues are 

I hope this helps to answer your questions about the manager job. If not, please ask 
more specific questions. I try to answer them ;-)
