I'm replying to my own post here.. But wanted to add:

Zine's website is : http://zine.pocoo.org
Zine is not *just* a blogging software.
Zine can be configured to have a "fixed" home page and sections and of
course a blog/news.
The advantage of using Zine is, it is a WSGI aware server which can be
wired together with other software including
those built using django/pylons/zope etc.,

Zine is primarily developed by Armin Ronacher who has also brought to
us Pygments (syntax highlighting),
Sphinx (the official python documentation framework), so zine has some
serious muscles behind it.
