Re: [libreoffice-website] Website and wiki design


I've used open atrium a little and think that it requires a real
requirements evaluation. OpenAtrium is built using Drupal and provides a
lot of features. I'm a fan of iterative improvements to a minimalist design
to meet requested needs. I guess I don't like buffets and prefer ala carte,
if I can control my apetite. I think thats why I like Drupal is that I can
strip the system down to the most basic functions and add only the features
necessary for a given person to accomplish their role.
