Ah, if you could describe more the features you're looking for in the 
system I think it would help to narrow down the suggestions. Trac could 
work but because of it's close ties to svn might not be the best system.
There are many other options out there depending on your needs, for 
instance many of the osgeo projects and sites use Drupal, and MediaWiki.

I happen to also be a Plone developer and I think many of the available 
Content Management systems have potential. Depending on how you want to 
manage your datasets, take a look at the Geonetwork project on osgeo

Even if it only does a fraction of what you need you can integrate it 
with another CMS or Wiki.
