I had a recent discussion about website landing pages on irc, we are

I like the idea, except the "wordpress" part ;-)

Wordpress has a, well, interesting[tm] security history and it seems
they need to get fixes out faster than they can be deployed on the
openSUSE servers ;-) (see

My proposal is to use Serendipity ("S9Y", It
provides features similar to wordpress and has a much better security
history (only one or two security issues per year, and most of them were
caused by "foreign" code like the WYSIWYG editor library).

S9Y also has the advantage of using smarty templates. Compared to the
PHP/HTML mix used by wordpress (AFAIK), already this is a big win - not
only regarding security.

S9Y also can import data from wordpress etc., so it would even be
possible to migrate news.o.o and lizards.o.o to S9Y.

Oh, and the S9Y developers are usually very responsive - just in case we
need them ;-)

Die habe ich gerade auf Jahre saniert, glaube ich.
