Drupal, Joomla! among finalists for open-source CMS award

Filed under
Drupal

UK-based Packt Publishing has announced the finalists for its Open Source CMS Award: CMS Made Simple, Drupal, e107, Joomla!, and PHP-Fusion. The overall winning project, scheduled to be announced in November, will receive $5,000, with an additional $15,000 distributed among runners-up and subcategory winners.

These content-management systems (CMSs) were selected through an online nomination process in July and August. A final winner will be chosen from the five nominees from the votes of three human judges and a virtual judge that represents the winner of the final voting round.

Drupal and Joomla! are among the most well-known open-source CMSs. They, along with Plone, were Packt's top three CM systems in last year's contest.

New to this year's finalist list are CMS Made Simple, e107 and PHP-Fusion. CMS Made Simple lives up to its name: it is indeed simple, but limited in its feature set, as is PHP-Fusion. The e107 system provides more features and flexibility. A finalist last year, it was lauded for its flexibility and ease of installation.

Of this year's five finalists, only Drupal natively supports version control -- the ability to track changes to site content and roll back to previous versions. It's also the only one to support content staging, although that requires an add-on module.

Exploring Contributors Centrality Over Time

At the end of my previous post we concluded with yet another question. Indeed, on the 2017 KDEPIM contributor network we found out that Christian Mollekopf while being a very consistent committer didn't appear as centrality as we would expect. Yet from the topology he seemed to act as a bridge between the core contributors and contributors with a very low centrality. This time we'll try to look into this and figure out what might be going on. My first attempt at this was to try to look into the contributor network on a different time period and see how it goes. If we take two snapshots of the network for the two semesters of 2017, how would it look? Well, easy to do with my current scripts so let's see! Read more
