Yes, but only in the context of projects and only by registered users of
the site. Not inside the newswire. At least not for now.

The user can leave open the wiki pages of a project so that any other
registered user can modify them. Articles and Events in indycore may be
published by anonymous users but they don't have any versioning yet.
It's planned for the short term future.
Currently, after publishing an article or event, only a reviewer can
edit it. In the future it will be possible to recall it, edit it and
republish it, but again only by the original author. It's not hard to

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Can you give a visual example?
In any case it's definately possible to have different views of the same
content. Such a view could be even composed or customized through the
web, using the Zope Page Template language, which is very similar to
> 4. Is it possible to tag wiki pages?
This is an upcoming feature of OpenCore:
There is a tagcloud in indycore, but the taxonomy of articles is
currently being done by the site reviewers only.
> 5. Is it available a de.licio.us like feature under Plone, for suggesting links?
Yes, definately. There are components that can do it. They are not
currently used by OpenCore or indycore but it would be trivial to
