Right. So in English:

1) Some of Spectra is going into CF
2) Some will develop into a workflow-ish type product (tbd,
   but possibly looking at competing with Interwoven Teamsite)
   which could potentially be app-server neutral.

To be honest, Spectra (while a great product) wasn't really
flying as a competitive CMS. Most of the CMS people I talk
to haven't even *heard* of it, let alone would consider it
up alongside Teamsite, Vignette, Documentum etc.


(moving this over to thelist where Ray Camden may pick up
on it)
