Dear Leo,

We are looking for similar information and in the past have asked similar questions to come up with similar results from cmsmatrix and Drupal.

There are few options currently available. The CMS developing community has done relatively little in incorporating semantic web technology and the fact that Drupal has some features is because we personally persuaded Dries Buytaert, developer of Drupal to start incorporating features.

I am definitely interested in getting the information you are looking for as well.

Hello Semantic-Web,

we are searching (for the http://www.organik-project.eu) for a CMS that
supports semantic web 2.0 features, which we roughly define as:
* the typical CMS features of managing content, users, groups, access,
rendering, site navigation, beautyful websites
* blogging
* wiki
* tagging
* RSS feeds
* bookmarklet & adding websites as content (= delicious.com like features)
* full text indexing
* RDF support

And some good algorithms:
* social tagging recommendations (= based on your tags, you may be interested
* semantic search (= taxonomies, multiple labels, query expansion)

for example, http://drupal.org has all this.

Based on requirements from our funding project,
we are bound to chose a non-GPL (non-viral) license,
can you recommend a Semantic-Web friendly open source CMS system, preferably

We looked around, but for example from the ~10 CMS (Apache/BSD lic) listed on
http://oscom.org/matrix/, none have RDF or semantic search.

kind regards
Leo Sauermann

looking at the hundreds of CMS listed at http://www.cmsmatrix.org/, we know
that many systems have some of the features,
due to resource restrictions, we cannot add too many features ourselves - so
only CMS with at least 80% of the above features are interesting to us.

we prefer "true" open source systems with an open community,
the "company developed GPL CMS engine and all modules are commercial"
approach is not so attractive.
