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 active
-- 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
I just finished watching the Pagoda screencast -- very impressive stuff.
I definitely recommend taking a look. It's designed to drop right into
any existing TurboGears project. It handles revision reviews,
publication schedules, powerful plugins, wiki-like features,
and all of the "web2.0" hotness you could ask for.
However, it's still very immature, and parts of the screencast were
actually mockups.. but it definitely has potential.
