If you are interested in a CMS, take a look at the following:

- Plone:  http://plone.org/

- Silva:  http://infrae.com/products/silva

Both of which are built on Zope: http://zope.org/

And, I do not know anything about this one, but it looks
interesting -- Skeletonz: http://orangoo.com/skeletonz/

You might also find helpful info at: http://www.cmsreview.com/

If you have success with one, please report back here with your
experience, suggestions, etc.
