Not that I doubt your coding skills, but that would be another large set
of unique code that Fedora Infrastructure would need to maintain. By
using an existing CMS system FI gains from the experiences of everyone
else that runs the CMS we choose. Plus by choosing an existing CMS we
can spend those 4-8 weeks working on content and making a Fedora theme.
Not to mention there are python CMS's... including a TurboGears one. We
could look into whether those are close to meeting our needs and propose
patches to upstream instead of completely reinventing the wheel. These
are the ones I found yesterday that appear to be in a usable state and
-- DJango based
-- TurboGears based and has received a bit of
press but hasn't made a release yet. Needs evaluation to see if it's
ready enough for our usage
Of course, if this were just an excuse for you to kick off your own
upstream project, that might work out okay as well :-)
