I'd like to step back and reframe our discussion a bit. We've been in the weeds comparing CMSs, but 
we haven't discussed the architecture of the site the CMS needs to support. I think different 
expectations of requirements may be why we've broken into two major camps.

What pages will the site include at its launch? Only those currently on the TDF website? If that is 
our plan, then the CMS choice is much simpler. 

I've written a list of pages as I think they should be organized in the wiki, but this is an 
expansion from what the current TDF site includes. (It attempts to include future needs, not just 
current needs.)

Christian: What is your expectation for site IA? Can you list the site sections and pages you 
envision, especially if they are very different from what I have put onto the wiki?

Finally, based on what I have observed from Mozilla's organization, shouldn't we consider two 
entirely separate websites at different domains (one for TDF, and one for LibO)? I think this would 
be much easier for users to understand, as they'd want to spend their time on the LibO site. 
Meanwhile, community participants would mostly use the TDF site. Perhaps we could make one of these 
sites use SilverStripe and one use Drupal, as a compromise...
