Its front should still be a blog, but it could be based on mod_base_site, and also serve as a running example for the documentation.

Shall we make it a module? And then just enable that module?

Then it is easier to re-use blogging functionality in other sites.

I've actually done that. Very handy.

The idea of a skel site is to let users see how stuff is implemented in an actual site.

I feel that if we implement this as a module, the site itself will be too empty, and users might feel that stuff is hidden from them?

Depends on our debugging tools.

If we make it clear how to can overrule, mix and match templates then it might actually be quite good to use a module.

But I agree that the "play" part is more difficult with everything originating from some module in the core.

Do we need a "copy this template I look at to my site" functionality? What is the best way to support tinkering?

Sounds like we need a cookbook too. ;-)

There are so many ways to implement functionality with zotonic. It is also possible to make it a module of the skel site.

I agree with Arjan, that having the blog as a module (very cool :) is likely going to hide it a little too well for newcomers.

I like the idea however that by simply having a empty site, one can define the entire site by modules.
