At Chocolate Lily we work to make the best web technology accessible to all organizations. We do so through Open Outreach, a free software that provides an out of the box website with features meeting the particular aims and needs of NGOs.
Browsing joomla.org, I recently noticed the following in the Joomla roadmap:
The Joomla! CMS [content management system] seeks to create a variety of distributions of the CMS to address a variety of common niche markets.
As a Drupal developer with a longtime focus on distributions ("distros"), I'd like to support this Joomla initiative. As a first step, as followup to posting in the Joomla development forum, I thought I'd try to write up some observations on Drupal, Joomla, and distros.
I've written this with an intended audience of Joomla developers. But if you're a Drupal contributor, please wade in as well!
