  Technically yes, but practically Django is the closest you can get to
  write CMS-y apps in Python apart from Plone. So though "Django is not
  CMS", "Django has CMS" and in pratical terms, that is good enough to
  say Djangi is like a CMS in common parlance. At least this is what I have
  heard directly from people who build and support Django based websites
  in production, such as Ramdas.

  This is what is said in the Django FAQ also.

 It did not look like the scipy.in site is customizable.  I registerd as a
 there and there was no user customization options. But perhaps you
 just mean site level customization.

 Btw, don't say Plone is not customizable. We use Plone in the EIAO
 project and has create an entirely different product called worksite out
 of it customizing it in every possible fashion. Of course the person behind

 it is a Python wiz, but it is not an impossible task to do as you are
 to make it sound.
