that will be the main question. We have limited resources
(development-wise, and on the XS) and Moodle and Mediawiki will be on
the XS, and heavily customised to fit well in the workflow. Both have
strong content-management aspects. I am open to having a CMS there as
well, but it is hard to provide a clear added value with it.

Once the Moodle/Mediawiki combo is a bit more ship-shape, I would
invite Drupal/Mambo developers to have a look at what is in place, and
figure out if it is worth their effort to have a CMS install in there.
It won't be just a simple packaging issue -- UI changes,
preconfigured/pre-seeded databases, auth integration, etc.
