Hi David,

One thing I do on my own sites is to put a link in the page bottom
"Powered by Open Source software". That link goes to a page containing
a list of some of the software used on the server: the Linux distrib
used, Apache, PHP, MySQL, the CMS I'm using, and various other stuff
that people use continually and practically never mention. IMHO, the
very least courtesy is to put a link to the SilverStripe project, for

I'd rather not do that, since it is already decided that silverstripe
is only used until drupal is deployed.

I would of course love to stick with silverstripe, but that's the plan...

So when now the LO site shows off silverstripe in big letters, and
only a few month later silverstripe is replaced by drupal, people
might jump to conclusions like "Silverstripe couldn't cope with the
load, wasn't powerful enough, thus it was replaced by drupal".

This surely is not the case, but this is what I fear will happen.

Good idea?

Not sure, see above.
Silverstripe is "credited" in the source of every page:
<meta name="generator" content="SilverStripe -"; />

Giving that the move to  drupal is already decided, I fear that
crediting silverstripe might actually have a bad effect, not a
positive one.

But if you can suggest a suitable wording that makes this perfectly
clear: Why not.
