New Bundling Scheme For MySource Matrix v3.20 Open Source CMS

,----[ Quote ]

State of the Project Report: Joomla! Web CMS

,----[ Quote ]
| The original intent was to use the GNU Public License (GPL) for Joomla!
| However, there was an entire ecosystem of proprietary extensions around the
| open source CMS, with many people making their entire living from these
| extensions.
| In 2005, the core team had a member of the OSM board write up a rider,
| granting an exception for these extension developers to use any license they
| wanted.
| This rider was added in May 2006, but that wasn't the end of the issue. Over
| the next year, the core team began to worry that exceptions were not in fact
| legal within some interpretations of the GPL and may put the project in
| jeopardy. On June 14, 2007, the official announcement "Open Source Does
| Matter" appeared, re-committing Joomla! to full GPL compliance and promising
| that the road would not be littered with lawsuits or snap decisions.

Assessing Open Source Web Content Management

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the past 12 years, I’ve seen numerous open source platforms emerge in
| the web content management (WCM) arena. Today, you can find more than 70 open

Open source identity: Spine CMS creator Hendrik Van Belleghem

,----[ Quote ]
| Looking for a Web-based content management system that uses Perl instead of
| PHP? Want to server dynamic and static content with PostrgeSQL, not MySQL?
| What started out as a hobby project by Hendrik Van Belleghem, based in Bazel,
| Belgium, has grown into Spine – a Perl Web content system for Apache on Unix
| systems. With so many LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) content systems
| available, Spine offers a refreshing alternative with the tried and tested
| Perl language and is database independent. Open Source Identity interviews
| Van Belleghem about Spine, a lesser-known alternative to the popular Web
| CMSs.


Open-source Drupal turns pro

,----[ Quote ]
| The standard Drupal core already has decent management, but several Acquia
| network modules, installed during setup, take administration a few steps
| further. These enable your Acquia Drupal installation to communicate securely
| with the Acquia Network and exchange configuration, operation, and profile
| information.
| A big part of what you're paying for with Acquia Drupal is support; the
| portal offers a simple way to log support incidents and track your tickets.
| During my testing, Acquia did meet the specified response deadline — and
| resolved my questions satisfactorily.
