Packt Open Source CMS Candidates

Interestingly, the Packt OS CMS Nomination forms have pre-populated pull-down menus. For those who care about such minutiae, here are the pre-approved CMSs in the Overall CMS category and, following that, the Other CMS category. Packt has pre-approved 65 CMSs for the overall group and 15 for the others. To put that in perspective, CMS Matrix lists 1017 CMSs.

By "other" Packt means non-PHP, so right off the bat, as in previous years, we've got ecclesiastical differences. I should also note that their Hall of Fame Award this year is limited to the two previous overall winners, Drupal and Joomla, plus whoever is this year's winner.

Without further ado, here are the lucky few who got their tickets pre-punched by Packt. So many CMSs; so little time.

Mmmm... Umbraco, Nuxeo, Hippo, Liferay and others are not PHP based.

The categories are weird. I can't really see how any category could include Liferay (a Java portal with a rudimentary CMS component), Nuxeo (Java ECM), Moodle (LMS), Alfresco (DMS/ECM), Mambo (WCM), Wordpress (blogging software) etc. and then another category has Alfresco again, Liferay again, Plone etc.

Edwin, I found it very odd that you would use a Plone Advocacy blog to post a shallow advertisement for your app. Please try to keep your comments relevant to the discussion at hand. And in all fairness, kindly open up your blog to the public.
