This page mentions Alfresco as if it were still in use, although one
of the links is dead and the other mentions documentation, which I
believe is now over at on Plone.

Alfresco sounds like a good candidate. I think the next step in
considering it for this purpose is understanding why we moved away
from it for our localization and documentation work. If there are
limitations to the platform, best to identify them up front :-)

The Alfresco server was not ours and the docs team who tried it decided 
to stay with the ODFAuthors workflow instead of using Alfresco. 
ODFAuthors has been with us from the very start and also was there with 

IMHO, the problems encountered with the Alfresco setup with the
documentation team are mainly on the organizational ones. Alfresco can
do a lot of interesting and useful things... but we first need to think
properly about the workflows and rules we need before setting up the
constraints. The case we are discussing here is less complex than the
doc team one and I'm convinced we could start with no complexity (like a
sort of file server with versioning) and setup workflows later when
people start to be used to the tool (may it be Alfresco or any other
one) and know what we can do with it.

Cedric also mentioned Plone as a possible candidate. Should this also be 
looked at? The LibreOffice extensions website works on Plone and also 
does CMIS (I think this is what Cedric mentioned).

Well, I never said it does it... I said Plone has some sort of CMIS
support, but probably not mature enough yet. I also said I'll need the
CMIS feature on the templates website sooner or later, though it's not
done yet.

Plone may be a candidate, but I'm honestly not sure it's the best one
for what is usually called ECM (Enterprise Content Management)... which
is what we are looking for here.
