Three CMSes came up in my search. I checked the trac on each of them and they seem active. I've heard their names before, but haven't actually needed to try them. I hope it helps.

A friend of mine is going to be running for alderman here in Evanston and

Drupal which I know nothing about.  Feature-wise I presume he's going to
want some fairly basic features: easy blog capability, user feedback,
top-level control of page appearance and templating, RSS feed generation,
basic database capability, probably role-based permissions.

In the Python world I'm vaguely familiar with Plone and Zope (the former
built on the latter, right?), but nothing else.  I know plenty of folks like
Django.  Is there a content management system built on top of it?  On the
CMS page of the Python wiki:


I see a handful, none of which I recognize other than Zope, Plone and
PyLucid.  I'm not keen on Zope simply because of its heft and seems like it
woild be massive overkill here.  That would seem to doom Plone as well.  (Is
it any easier to install/use?)  PyLucid seems to have some of the features I
mentioned about.  I see someone (Massimo?) has built a CMS atop web2py
called KPAX.

So what to people use/recommend for CMS on smallish websites?
