Too much Content
For really some time now, CoreMedia provides a load of demo-site contents for different scenarios of the usage of their products. It is quite easy to set up a system that really shows something.
From my point of view, taking one of these demo sites and ripping out the unnecessary parts was not helpful, since you might end up - especially for new releases - with too much data that might be needed. At least a feeling of unknown dependencies sometimes remained.

A small content snippet with as few elements as ever possible still seemed to be missing. And this still holds true for the latest release CoreMedia CMS-9 (and LiveContext 3 as well) as shown from a small personal survey.
Again involved in a project based on CoreMedia products, I am now using the latest - and greatest - version of the CMS product - CoreMedia CMS 9, and asked some old friends to help me.
After showing the system and demos one of the first questions: "Ok, nice, where is the minimal Hello World site?".
From that feedback without any prior CoreMedia-related background, I assume that developers expect that part of a software - any software - to be there.
The first step now was, to ask people for their starting point content sets or Hello World sites. The result was then reworked as a CoreMedia CMS 9 Hello World site as depicted below:
It could be imported into the repository and instantly be used as a Hello World site, - and with its static content only as a Hello World site.
This is a nice missing piece - I think - for CoreMedia CMS 9, but it is not really the last step for a starting point for a project. For every re-use that Hello World content has to be reworked to use the needed

This ended in a rewrite script and a content workspace which I now would like to make available to any interested developer in the CoreMedia-sphere.
Find the resulting code at Bitbucket, GitLab, and Github.
Enjoy. Feedback is welcome.
