The exhibition page is a place to show works made with any of the many flavors of Pd. The Pd Exhibition works by using a Plone Smart Folder and Plone Articles with an 'Exhibition' keyword/tag. Anyone can add articles to the Pd Exhibition, and indeed everyone is encouraged to contribute.


The only hard rule about posting to the Pd Exhibition: you can post about any project made with any flavor of Pd, you just cannot post projects that you worked on or are affilliated with.

So the author of a Pd Exhibition post cannot write about a project that she worked on, advised, or contributed to. The idea here is that we have a curated exhibition rather than just a place to post announcements. Hopefully that will give us the benefits of a curated section without the downsides of exclusivity. There are lots of other places for people to post their own work, we are trying something different with the Pd exhibition.
